Type: AFA Article

TO: pmCAL Flight Attendants with a JULY Due Month who travel to their Training Location

BASES AFFECTED: (IAD, WTA, WLS, LAX, LAI, LLS)

Dear Flight Attendant,

In anticipation of the peak 2018 summer flying, we have identified an opportunity to support United’s goal of improved productivity during our peak July flying month.   To accomplish this, those Flight Attendants who travel from their base to another location for training will be required to re-bid their due (must go) CQ training month from July to a month earlier in the calendar year to ensure regulatory compliance.   In addition to supporting corporate productivity objectives, this decision will also maximize revenue opportunities on the flights where seats would otherwise have been used to transport Flight Attendants to and from training.

You are receiving this email because you have been identified as having a July CQ due month and are required to travel to another location for training. You will have the opportunity to bid for a new due month choosing from the following three choices:  March 2018, April 2018 or May 2018.   Once awarded your new month, you will receive notification of your new due (bid) month via CCS message.

Note:  If you are on a Leave of Absence status at the time of the award, you will not be assigned a new due (must go) month.

The following are the procedures by which you will submit a bid:

Send an email to FAtrainingDue@united.com.

Please be sure to place your employee ID number in the subject line.

Specify your bid preference by listing the months in preference order in the following way:

  1. April 2018
  2.  May 2018
  3.  March 2018

Once your bid has been submitted, a confirmation email will be sent to you.\

CQ due month Bids Open: Tuesday January 23, 2018 at 1200 CST.
CQ due month Bids Close: Monday February 05, 2018 at 0700 CST.
CQ Awards Sent via CCS message no later than February 6, 2018 at 0700 CST.

CQ due month bids will be awarded in base seniority order. 

If you do not bid (no bids) or you cannot hold what you bid (insufficient bid), you will be awarded a new due (bid) month in inverse seniority order starting with the earliest of the available training month options, in consecutive order, to the last training month option -  (i.e. March, April then May).
