Q: Can a L-VX FA be forced out of a L-VX base by L-AS FAs?
A: No. Neither can L-VX FAs be forced out of a L-VX base by L-AS FAs, nor can L-AS FAs be forced out of a L-AS base by L-VX FAs as a direct consequence of the merger.
A Flight Attendant may not be forced out of her/his base by another Flight Attendant except in very specific circumstances such as a domicile closure. Even then, a “master re-bid” (i.e. “base-re-bid” or “bump and flush” bid) is done in Occupational Seniority order according to contractual rules. There will be no such master re-bid as a direct consequence of the merger. The L-VX and L-AS Flight Attendants must stay within their respective partition until after Full Implementation, at which point they may voluntarily swap or transfer domiciles pursuant to contractual requirements. Vacancies will be awarded in Occupational Seniority order from the Integrated Seniority List (ISL).
