  • Award count.

  • You can sort by any column.

On Friday, the company published these numbers:

The Global "Tentative Headcount Targets" are significantly higher than the Min/Max Bulletin "Projected System Staffing." I asked Manpower Planning for clarification.

The response from Manpower Planning sidestepped the question I asked regarding the relationship of "Tentative Headcount Targets" vs Min/Max Bulletin "Projected System Staffing." The response was the boilerplate Min/Max commentary from Friday's bulletin:

The Min/Max doesn’t really have any applicability to a displacement. The requirement to publish it should probably be removed from the UPA. Here’s how ALPA described it: MIN-MAX Bulletin The Vacancy MIN-MAX bulletin accompanies the Surplus Letter. It really doesn't have any applicability to a displacement except to indicate from which Categories the Company is displacing and to establish the number of pilots used when evaluating percentage bids. All other numbers are advisory only. As stated above, you can bump into any Category your seniority can hold. The MAX number for the Category has no effect on where you can bump. Unfortunately, I don’t have headcount targets for the narrowbody fleets. We can generally move flying around to match pilot staffing, so it’s much more fluid.

Sorry about that, I definitely know it would be helpful. Paul

Based on my understanding, the Min/Max Bulletin "Projected System Staffing" is a contractual requirement which does not necessarily relate directly to the planned "Tentative Headcount Targets." Therefore, this hybrid matrix may have some value for general estimates:

Manpower Planning Documents:

Every pilot involved in or concerned with the process should read the relevant sections of the UPA (including section 8-E ). If you haven't read that section, you probably won't realize some important details and protections that are part of the displacement process.

The ALPA SSC published a document which is very helpful in explaining the process.

ALPA SSC update for May 8, 2008 regarding 309 displacement bid cancellations.

ALPA SSC update for May 7, 2008 regarding relative seniority.
