Association of Flight Attendants-CWA United Master Executive Council

Collective Bargaining Agreement


Waiver of Transit Time

October 2, 1997

Mr. Kevin Lum, President

UAL/AFA Master Executive Council

Association of Flight Attendants

6400 Shafer Court, Suite 250

Rosemont, IL 60018

Dear Mr. Lum:

This will confirm the agreement reached between the Company and the Union in negotiations leading to the 1996-2001 and 2001-2006 Agreement. The parties recognize that the Legal Rest Minimums of Section 12.M.1. could be affected by the increased transit time required to meet the parties agreement to place Flight Attendants in downtown or downtown-like locations.

In such cases, the parties agree the place of lodging minimums may be waived by the actual transit times with concurrence of the MEC President/designee.
