    This is kind of getting out of hand wasn't 3101 filing just last year? And the way they make the list for OA and BC is too lazy

    Yup everything @Busoperator stated. Just want to add a little something on top of that. TA is also consider as a civil service. Both OA and TA uses same union I believe "TWU local 100" except for staten island depots uses "ATU" as their union. The pensions on TA is different compare to OA.

    Yes both TA and OA can work at any depot during their senority pick if the route line they want is open. As far the different pensions benefits and how it goes, not sure exactly in full details what is being offered between the two, but I know TA will be covered by the city of new york, so im guessing maybe similar to any city civil service worker like "Nypd, fire dept, postal service" you know. But maybe theres a site somewhere that may show us a little sample of how the pensions work in the city of ny.
