The process for awarding transfers between bases will be harmonized effective with the March 2018 bid period. The harmonized transfer process offers opportunities for all Flight Attendants:

  • Two base requests permitted when submitting a transfer
  • Ability to accept or decline transfers required within seven (7) days of award date
  • Displays that allow Flight Attendants to see relative position on transfer lists
  • Transfers awarded at any time eliminating pmCAL 5th of the month deadline
  • None responses results in transfer award considered decline
  • If declined, three (3) month transfer inhibit applied
  • If accepted, six (6) month transfer restriction applied at new location
  • Transfers permitted only between pre-merger locations until common scheduling platform.  For example, pmUAL Flight Attendants may not transfer to CLE nor may pmCAL Flight Attendants transfer to BOS.
