I am under the impression that as a prior exp vet, when you are assigned to your facility, you are placed at the bottom of the lowest D band available, in my case this was D2. That being said, I only received lump sum amounts from NATCA raises, so that leads me to believe that I was at the top of D1. Anyway, I transferred to a new facility while still in training. The new facility has a D1 band. What happened was I stayed at my same pay minus my locality, but it is within the D1 band. If I was at the D2 band, would I have stayed there and went to the bottom of the D2 band at the new facility? Or are we actually assigned the top of D1 if that band isn't available.
