Council 21 - Washington DC
United Releases Revised Timeline for October 2018 (Sep 20, 2018)
United Releases Revised Timeline for October 2018
Date: September 19, 2018
Mutual trades and EOM conflicts
As of this evening, all Flight Attendants have the ability to complete mutual trip trades. Mutual trades can be submitted via CCS or using Mobile CCS. Mutual trades can be used to resolve an End of Month (EOM) conflict. You may also conduct mutual trades without resolving the end of month conflict. However, for EOMs, you have 24 hours to complete a trade with another Flight Attendant to eliminate the conflict. If, however, you are unable to resolve the conflict or choose not to resolve the conflict using a mutual trade, at 1700 CT on September 20, 2018, your line will be blocked and you will be prevented from additional mutual training until the conflict is resolved. Once the EOM conflict has been resolved, your guarantee will be reset, your line will be “unlocked,” and you will then be able to enter into mutual trades for the balance of the schedule month.
Crew Scheduling is not able to assist Flight Attendants with an EOM who are also attempting to routinely trade pairings. Make every effort to resolve the conflict through CCS or Mobile CCS. However, if you experience technical issues processing a mutual trade in CCS or Mobile CCS and need to contact Crew Scheduling, we recommend both Flight Attendants involved in the trade call Crew Scheduling together to ensure trade accuracy. All trade requests will still be validated for full JCBA legalities. If illegal, Crew Scheduling will be unable to complete the requested trade.
