Heard that a B737 CA got fired for pushing a gate agent (on top of other issues) was rehired recently as second most senior FO. Is it true that he got to keep his seniority?

Bust a moo when I feel like I'm getting milked.

Was it the, "Angry Russian"? There was a rumor about him getting canned for a pushing incident but haven't heard about him coming back.

Reason would have it that if this CA got terminated, grieved it, and subsequently won the 'wrongful termination', grievance, IF that is what occurred, this person would take their place back in line right where they left off and with back-pay. Depending of course what was negotiated, if anything.

It's hardly a re-hire in the above example.

Not rumor. It's true. (the part about him being back. Not the part about pushing a gate agent-can't confirm that.

He likely wouldn't be "rehired". More than likely he would simply be "reinstated", which is a completely different thing, with a year in the right seat to think about his actions...

Pretty common for Captains who screw up badly to get bumped back to F/O in a disciplinary move by the company. If he accepted it as part of his reinstatement, then there is no grievance option, either, in all likelihood.
