Bidding Reminders for System Bid 17-02

As you consider your bidding options for System Bid 17-02, please keep in mind the following:

Standing Bid: All pilots should review and if necessary update your standing bids in VIPS. Even though you may not desire to bid on this particular System Bid, you should ensure the Standing Bid reflects what you want to fly.

FDA pilot receiving passover pay: If you are an FDA pilot receiving passover (in whatever form) for a crew position in a different geographic location, you have the ability to defer your obligation to “protect” your passover pay on this System Bid. You do not have to affirmatively do anything other than staying put. For example, a CGN B757 F/O is currently receiving passover pay for the MEM A300 F/O crew position. She wishes to stay in CGN but wants to maintain the passover pay. She may reflect in her standing bid, CGN B57 F/O at 100% and she will retain her current passover pay while remaining a F/O in CGN. 

If the passover pay, in the EMEA and HKG, is for a crew position in the same geographic location (e.g., HKG F/O receiving passover for HKG CAP), the stop and repayment triggers are applicable for this System Bid.

New Hire Passover Pay: If you are receiving new hire passover pay, the Company treats you for passover stop and repayment triggers as having received the award. If you desire to be awarded a new crew position on this System Bid (B67 CAP HKG, possibly B67 F/O HKG, and B57 F/O MEM), being awarded such may have implications on your new hire passover pay. If you are awarded the crew position you are getting new hire passover pay for, your passover will not end, and will continue until you get activated.

If you get awarded your current crew position (or a lower paying crew position), and could have held the passover pay crew position, your passover will end and you will have to repay the passover pay (this does not include those “deferring” in an FDA as described above).

If you get awarded a higher paying crew position, but not the crew position you are getting new hire passover pay for, your passover pay will end on the closing date of the System Bid, but there will not be a repayment obligation (again, this does not include those “deferring” in an FDA as described above). 

If you get awarded a lateral crew position, your passover pay will end on the closing date of the System Bid, but there will not be a repayment obligation (again, this does not include those “deferring” in an FDA as described above). 

New Hire Passover Pay and the passover pay start/stop/repayment triggers can be found in the 2011 CBA, Section 24.D.2. and E.5. Click here

Notional/Actual Awards and Down/Lateral Bid Awards (DLBAs): The new Section 24.C.3.c. provides an FDA pilot who has not fulfilled the minimum commitment period the ability to still receive an award (notional), and then get assigned a training start date or base transfer activation date after the commitment period (no later than 60 days of the minimum commitment period fulfillment). With the full programming not yet available, the end result will still be the same. Such an FDA pilot will actually receive the award, and then his base transfer date will be administered manually. For a B57 FO CGN to B57 FO MEM, the new provisions related to Down/Lateral Bid Award (DLBA) restrictions are not applicable (since a DLBA is defined as an award for which ITU training is required, 2015 CBA Section 2.46 p.15). 

Bidding with or without passover implications can be complicated. If you have any questions concerning bidding and/or passover pay, please contact the ALPA office at 901-752-8749 or email us at FedEx-Enforcement@alpa.org.
