Re: Protection Against Involuntary Furlough

Dear Greg:

This confirms our discussion and agreement concerning a Signing Bonus to be paid to s-United Flight Attendants upon ratification and execution of this Collective Bargaining Agreement.

We have agreed that the Company will pay a signing bonus in the amount of five thousand dollars ($5,000 USD) to each Flight Attendant covered by this Agreement who is on the active payroll as of the date of ratification. Such payments will be paid within 30 days of ratification.

Payments made pursuant to this Letter of Agreement shall be by payroll check or electronic deposit (less applicable taxes and deductions) separate from regular payroll disbursements. Flight Attendants may contribute such payments to their existing 401(k) account consistent with each Flight Attendant's deferral election on file with the 401(k) Plan's record keeper for other wages eligible for deferral under the terms of the 401(k) Plan, and to the extent permitted under applicable laws and regulations without extending incremental benefits to employees not covered by this Agreement.

Sincerely,,

 

/s/ P. Douglas McKeen                         

P. Douglas McKeen
Senior Vice President, Labor Relations

 

Agreed, this 28th day of February, 2012
