Any news or inside information on what the arbitration of seniority for joint pilot list will look like due on or before this Monday December 8th? Guess will be difficult to please everyone but hope better than what the NW and Republic decision was years ago.

Quoting NWAESC (Reply 6): Depends on how much the decision "mirrors" the Nicolau one....
if it mirrors the Nic award, the NWA pilots may be unhappy, but they won't be able to stop it. Unlike the situation at USAir, where the east pilots out number the west, the NWA pilots do not out number the DAL pilots, and thus could not vote in a new union. Further, there is already a joint contract in place, so neither side could stop the new list by refusing to ratify a joint contract.
PS, IMHO, Nicolau got the list right, he just needed longer fences.
