Management has declared Limited Critical Coverage at all domiciles beginning July 30 through August 2, 0215.
Our Contract provides for additional pay for Flight Attendants on flight assignments during holidays. Holidays are defined by domicile location, and also each Flight Attendant's birthday. Section 2.Q. of our Contract specifies that each Flight Attendant is eligible to be paid for up to 5 holidays per year and Section 5.L. outlines the formula for holiday pay. Friday being Independence Day, this is a designated holiday for 11 out of our 15 domiciles.
Management has advised that as we approach the July 4th Independence Day holiday weekend in the United States, there is an increase in the number of open IDs.
In response to our advocacy, management has acknowledged that the response times at both Crew Scheduling and Crew Accommodations have been high and are, in their view, less than acceptable.
MEC Central Schedule Committee DSL Report
Summer weather around the United States recently has caused reassignments and drafting across the system. As we all know, during the operation, flight schedules can fall apart, and while frustrating, reassignments are an undesirable but necessary part of our job. To protect our rights during reassignment, the company is obligated to follow the provisions outlined in our Contract.
This week our flying partners from LHR, LAX, DCA, LAS, BOS, and NRT successfully completed two days of training conducted by the MEC Central Schedule Committee.
