Reserve Review: Reserve “Short-Calls”
November 14, 2020
MEC Reserve Committee
Given the unprecedented reduction in force caused by the ongoing effects of COVID-19 on our industry, it is not surprising there has been a noticeable change in both the Reserve demographics and dynamics across the system, subsequent to October 1, 2020.
The combination of a smaller Reserve population, as well a different seniority group being subject to Reserve (many of whom are on Reserve for the first time under the scheduling provisions of the current Contract), has understandably resulted in an increased number of questions regarding various Reserves processes.
In effort to address these questions, we will be continuing our series of “Reserve Review” articles that will be posted regularly on the Reserve Resources page of the MEC website. This week, we review Reserve “Short-Calls.”
As a reminder, there are many other valuable resources available on the Reserve page, including the Reserve Survival Guide, Reserve Preferencing tutorial videos, Committee reports and other articles.
If you have additional questions, please contact your Local Council Reserve Committee.
