Two questions about A4S4. Firstly, it reads “the agency will provide priority consideration to the bargaining unit employee for in-grade/downgrade reassignment”. My spouse and I are both CPCs at a level 11, and I’m considering bidding a job at a level 12. Is facility pay level synonymous with grade? And therefore would this article be null and void? And secondly, how exactly does the article work? Do they just get put at the top of the manager ranking list on the next ncept? Or do they get moved even if the ncept doesn’t “allow” for it with gains/losses?

Ingrade/downgrade here means 11 or below. Priority consideration means top of managers ranking list. It doesn’t work for both simultaneously however. So you can’t just file A4 and have it place you both at the top. If only one of you gets selected on NCEPT then the spouse can file A4 on a future panel. A4 does not circumvent the National Release Policy so you can’t use it to leave a red building and you can’t use it get selected at a facility that isnt granted selections.

Unless there are kids involved. Cause I know of a couple In TPA where 1 spouse left and the other spouse filed A4 and got approved right away
