United Management again declared at 13:30 Central Time today Limited Critical Coverage (LCC) for ALL domiciles for trip IDs originating on August 14 through August 17, 2015. IDs picked up via open flying since the announcement on the LCC days will be paid at 1.5 times her/his rate of pay during the Limited Critical Coverage period. You must fly the trip to be paid the incentive.
As we all know, it’s been a while since we’ve had the good fortune of having new hires among our ranks. With the addition of our newest Members to the line, we’ve started to receive some questions about the filling of open premium positions. These questions suggest that we might all benefit from a review of the requirements of our Contract.

United management has announced Limited Critical Coverage for trip IDs originating August 7 through August 9, 2015. This Limited Critical Coverage is being offered at the following domiciles: DCA, HNL, HKG, IAH, LAX, LHR, NRT, ORD, and SFO.
In recent weeks we’ve seen many more instances where Flight Attendants on Reserve status have been awarded IDs on their days off through the open flying process.
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.
