We have confirmed with United the dates for the 2012 Attendance Point Credit Program. The implementation of this program a few years ago affords us with clear cut rules for attendance and provides uniformity and objectivity. Fostering a more positive approach in this program is the ability to generate a one point credit for attendance during the holiday period.
Let us be clear, there is no expectation that anyone who is sick should come to work when they are sick. A no absence period over the holidays will generate a one point credit, to be banked, under the following circumstances:
- If you work a flight segment and/or stand Reserve during December 15, 2012 through January 6, 2013, local domicile time; and,
- If you generate zero attendance points (as defined in Section II of the 2008 Discipline and Dispute Resolution Side Letter) during this same December 15, 2012 through January 6, 2013 period.
The one point credit will offset the first point generating occurrence after January 6, 2013. There is no expiration date for the one point credit and should the segment worked during this period experience a delay beyond January 6, 2013 it will still qualify for the credit.
At the conclusion of the holiday period, documentation of the one point credit for attendance during the holiday period will be by an entry in your work history (FDWH).
