The Union has been in constant contact with the Company concerning Initial Open Time which closed on May 21st. Currently as of 3:09 nothing had been processed, apparently it is due to an IT error. As of this time, it is running slowly and has been stopping and having to be rebooted. Once the IT error is corrected, Initial Open Time will be processed per the CRJ contract.
Section 7.K2. Initial Open Time
No later than twenty-four (24) hours after bid awards are posted, open

Bidding will close thirty-six (36) hours after the Initial Open Time is posted.
After the bidding period closes, the open flying shall be assigned to the
most senior Regular Lineholder requesting such assignment who is legal
pursuant to this agreement and the FARs.
If you notice an error once Initial Open Time is processed or if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your Grievance Representatives or myself.
