I have had a part-time air route for about the last 17 years. Coupled with running a Saturday shuttle that gets me about 9 hours and extra work during the week I average about 36-38, sometimes over 40 hours a week. However, there have been rumblings about air jobs being eliminated in our building and there are a pair 22.3 jobs posted that are for part-time employees only. These are not bad jobs and I am thinking better to be proactive now than have my job eliminated and having to go back into the hub part-time until any combo job comes open. If I understand the contract correctly I would take my current pay of 22.85 to the combo job (inside/inside) and would wait 36 months to reach what would then be top pay. During those 36 months do I still get the bi-annual raises or just stay at current pay until the 36 months are up?
