At the Fall 2016, Regular Meeting of the United Master Executive Council, the United MEC directed the MEC President to engage management in discussions aimed at advancing the process by which the award of the Cabin Jumpseat (CJA) is accomplished. In particular, the efforts are directed at awarding CJA consistent with the terms of the JCBA – by company or bidding seniority, whichever is earliest.
These discussions with management have taken place with an agreeable outcome. Work is underway to implement this change in the near future. As additional information becomes available, we will share it with you.
