The reserve assignment process in LOA 6 is basically a complete re-do of how reserves are assigned and utilized today. It is complex and we want to get it right. Getting it right means all programming and training is checked and rechecked prior to roll out. The Company and AFA will work hand and hand on testing and training. We will dedicate a future communication solely to the changes we will be implementing.
Yes, absent FAR legalities and reserve thresholds when applicable, the 65 and 50 hour constraints on minimum hours have been removed. However, it is important you stay at 6 days worked in a bid month to maintain pass travel in the next month and if you carry any insurance coverage through EDV you will need to either have a enough hours to cover your deductions or carefully follow the payment scheduled outlined in the recent communication.
In this example the Company takes all it can on for example your 16th paycheck. On your next check on the 1st if you can cover the $5 shortage you are now whole. If you cannot cover this shortage with your 1st check then you will be sent an invoice and you will have until 30 days from date of invoice. During this period you DO NOT lose your insurance coverage.
To maintain pass travel for the following month you must work a minimum of 6 work days in a month. The ONLY days that do not count as days worked are days lost via trip drops and sick days when you do not have enough sick time to cover the absence. You have a 2 days trip worth 8 hour, 4 hours per day. Prior to departure you call in sick for the entire trip. You have 2 hours in your sick bank. You would get credit for one day worked in this example.
Working with the Company, AFA believes they reached a fair agreement for those Flight Attendants who work pure CDOs lines so that they can get full benefit of the new drop rules and be paid appropriately when dropping this type of flying. There are examples in the recent E-LINE with more specific information to come in a future E-LINE.
