    Most sups are. Talk to the hall and get their opinion.

    Ask your supe where it says that in the contract.

    As far as I know, air exception work is done on a volunteer/as needed basis and doesn't knock you out of whatever else you're doing. It would if you were going into an air bid slot. You still get air top rate 2 years after your first punch.

    I was a shifter and drove saturday morning air. I had my usual part time pay, then on Saturdays I had whatever the pay was for Sat Air driving. I stop doing it a year later, no big deal. I never had to restart any seniority.
