    We have a Sup that was a Chief at a large airport before moving here. His high 3 was as a chief, then with a good TSP he is definitely going to make more money when he punches out later this year. I was shocked when he told me that.

    • Just got a call to set up the initial physical. Are there two, or was I misinformed?

The one guy has been there almost a year and still hasn't "qualified" for it. So for the OT he does work he just gets 1.5x OT. Your required to work your 10 hours per week routinely.

        So I don't know, your probably right. But would we also loose our shift diffs, at least at the levels we have them? I know from my evening and Sunday diffs, that adds up to a lot too.
        Like I said, I'd love to see the numbers worked out for everybody...then compared to an AOU covered equivalent position like BPA.
        I know I've yet to meet a PA who's not making more than me, all else equal. I also know a fair number of people in a stretch from Danville, WA to Fort Kent, ME and from what I've heard as a whole COPRA is no cash cow for them either. Ditto for most of those I know in the small to medium-large airports.

        Truthfully, I don't know. I know that 25% AUO is worth over 15K in my case. In a good year, I see maybe 7.5K in OT and another 8-10K in premiums/diffs. I'd say that holds roughly true(or less) with just about anybody I've worked with. Nobody I know would take much of a hit under AUO, except for working another 15-25% more work hours.

                I imagine that would be the 401k...and yes...I'm well aware about maxing out on that...I'm still trying to understand how it works...

                Do we get Medical benefits when we retire?

                • TSP 5%, first 3% dollar for dollar your agency matches. Remaining two percent agency contributes 50 cents to your dollar. So it would be your best interest to contribute at least 5%. Maximum contribution allowed for 2009 is $16,500, a $1,000 increase from 2008. There are different funds to allocate your contributions, do your research on the nature of the respective funds.

                    • junito9210 what is your geo.pref. for BPA. just wondering why you've been in TSU so long!!

                      • Geo location for BP doesn't matter anymore. They are just going down the TSU list offering applicants which ever station is open. If you don't accept you have 90 days to wait and see if a slot in your geo location opens and if it doesn't and you don't accept what's avaliable, your done.

                        Right now the BP is calling applicants in TSU from late Febuary.

                          Shoot for 12 mins and better...you will be ok.

                            If you are just going for a CBPO position even 13 or 14 minutes will be okay. That is a very slow jogging pace with no stops. If you are trying for BP also you will need to get the time to 12 min. to pass. You won't win any awards, but you will pass.

                                Exactly.

                                One, running a 12 minute 1.5 mile isn't all that hard. Just about anybody who puts in the effort to run the 1.5 in 12 minutes will get there.

                                Two, and more importantly, If you can run a 12 minute(or better) 1.5 mile you give yourself breathing room should/when you pull a muscle, tweak an ankle, wrench a knee or otherwise injury yourself to the point you lose time on the run.

                                Running a 14-15 minute 1.5 mile leaves you with no room to spare if/when you get hurt.
