Trading Reserve Days Off
October 19, 2018
MEC Reserve Committee
A Reserve may only trade a day off with another Reserve in her/his base, or, when applicable, the sub-base in which they hold a special qualification.
Trade requests may be done anytime during the month, however at least one (1) calendar day local time prior to the day to be traded. For example, if you wish to trade the 5th, the request must be made by the 3rd, leaving a full calendar day between the request and the day to be traded.
Throughout the month, Reserves may trade an unlimited number of days off with the Reserve availability pool.
- Minimum Reserve coverage will be determined by Crew Scheduling. Reserve pool trades will start with the trip trading window(s).
- When trading, Reserves must maintain availability for the shortest trip in their base or three days, whichever is greater.
- Rejected trades shall include the reason for being rejected.
Additional information on Trading Reserve days off is available in Section 8.J.1 of our JCBA. Questions can be directed to your Local Council Representatives.
