Type: AFA Article

Flight Attendants who place themselves on sick leave during the period starting July 1, 2018 –July 7, 2018 will be required under the terms of our JCBA to supply United Medical with an Absence Certificate (Section 13.C.4.). This requirement will also apply in those instances where sick leave is used to care for a spouse or minor child as set forth in Section 13.D.7. and additionally applies to Flight Attendants using approved FMLA during these specified holiday dates. There is only one exception to this rule. Flight Attendants who have had no absences during the prior twelve (12) calendar months are not subject to the Absence Certificate requirement that applies during the holiday period.

Additional information may be found in E-Lines publication, dated June 26, 2018.
