Dispute Resolution Worksheet - Enforce our Contract

If you experience a Contract violation that you are not able to resolve, document the issue by filing a Dispute Resolution Worksheet accessible through the homepage of www.unitedafa.org. Documenting the issue provides our Local Council Grievance Committee with the information necessary to address the issue with management and reach a resolution. Your report may result in a correction to your pay or help us educate a scheduler so our Contract is enforced and all of us experience the Contractual protections we fought so hard to achieve over the years. Each of us plays a role on our AFA Grievance Committee every time we fly. Doing your part to enforce our Contract is one of the most important ways we can support our negotiations.



Contractual Commuter/Emergency Policies

We encourage Flight Attendants to be aware of the possibility of irregular operations and review the Prudent Commuter Policyon page 249. We also encourage those in the affected area to review the Personal Emergency Policybeginning on page 250 of our Contract.

Reassignment Education

Lineholder Flight Attendants at their home domicile may be subject to Line Guarantee reassignments under Section 8.J.of our Contract. There is an AFActs on this subject in our website Contract section that includes explanation of the language and examples.

Flight Attendants on layover should review Contract Section 9.K., Irregular Operations.

Assignment and Reassignment Notification Parameters

Section 9 N.1.states that Flight Attendants must be notified by a face to face or telephone conversation concerning reassignment or a delayed flight. Text messages or other forms of notification are not acceptable. Also the scheduler needs to talk with each Flight Attendant about a reassignment. It is not the Flight Attendant in the purser position who is responsible to call each Flight Attendant on the FLTLOF. These notifications need to be handled by the scheduler.
