I have moved to Premiere as a lot of the companies I edit for are now using it. Overall impression is GREAT especially CC vs 5.5 which I started in.
In relation to my question, when I move my video track up a layer my audio stays on track 1 or whereever it started. This is really frustrating as it overwrites the exsiting audio when I move it.
Is there are workaround other than moving the audio down first then moving the clip along, I find this slows me down a lot.
Is this coming out in a new update, or is there a quick solution i missing?
I am about to head into 8 days of fast turnaround multi cam editing so any help would be appreciated.

The reason why one can move Video and the Audio separately is because...
What layer the video is on makes a difference. ie. vIdeo has upper layer dominance.
Audio does not care what layer it is on.
It would be far more inconvenient if audio tracks moved up or down when one moved the video. How would it know where to go?
I understand that side of it, its a feature which I was used to in FCP and now I dont have it so was wondering if CC has this feature.
In realation to audio not caring what layer it is on you are correct but if I want to shift it with my video to a different layer it is a labourous task when editing under pressure in time sensitive situations eg onsite VNRs for events where you have to have ambient bg or when you want ambient from b roll over talking to have to shift it down separately before moving your clip to avoid overwriting exsisting.
