Diplacement Tool When Exercising a Bump - 7/15/2012

Displacements (CCTM Option 6)                                           
This software allows TY&E employees to handle temporary and             
permanent displacements, as well as provides a method of movement       
for trainees within the TSSCREW System.                                 
                                                                        
The software will only work for if the employee has a valid             
displacement, has accepted notification, is not in a lay off status     
and is not on duty. An Administrative Specialist must manually          
process displacement transactions where agreements require the          
displacement to occur while the employee is on duty.                     
                                                                        
This software is designed to make seniority decisions based on the  
seniority roster of the job, incumbent and/or the position. Many    
different rosters govern positions protected by TY&E employees, only
one of which an individual must possess to occupy.                  
                                                                    
Displacements via the TSSCREW system is made by utilizing the PF4   
and PF10 keys from the displacement screen. These screens provide   
the positions and jobs eligible based on agreement and seniority.   
Place the cursor on the desired job or position, and then press     
enter. The system will automatically fill out the displacement      
screen.
