Miso Scoop - Reserve, Union Plus College, Reminders, Legalities (Aug 14, 2019)

In this edition:

  • Reserve Info
  • Union Plus Free College Program
  • Reminders
  • Legalities (September)

Reserve Info

The 2019 Reserve Survival Guide is now available online and can be downloaded from the MEC website.  For us in Narita, please make note of the following clarification: Reserves will be grouped based on their days of availability and classified as having 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, etc. days of availability.  This is for all RSV assignments, and can be found on page 17 of the Reserve Survival Guide.

We would like to thank the MEC Reserve Committee for putting this guide together.  If you have any questions, please contact any of the Officers, or any of our LEC Reserve Committee members.

New Programming to Address 1:7 Contractual Legality and 24:7 FAR Legality for Reserves

Crew Scheduling will no longer be required to insert a break day ("BRK") as a placeholder to resolve 1-in-7(1:7) Contractual or 24-in-7(24:7) FAR violations as the result of the conjunction of two schedule months after loading the new month schedule into the system. The system will no longer automatically prevent Reserves with blocks of seven (7) or more consecutive days of availability from trading or prevent Crew Scheduling from making assignments.

 

1-in-7 and 24-in-7 alerts will appear in the "Alerts" section found below the Master Schedule to ensure Flight Attendants are aware of these potential legalities. Please refer to the 1-in-7 and 24-in-7 Alerts Guide on Flying Together.

 

Reserves scheduled to be on duty for seven (7) or more days over month end due to either their schedule selection or bid award are reminded they must contact Crew Scheduling prior to the first day of the new bid month to have the 1-in-7 conflict resolved. If they do not contact Crew Scheduling before the first day of the new bid month, the 1-in-7 conflict is considered automatically waived consistent with the terms of our Contract.  (The 24-in-7 FAR must still be satisfied with a 24-hour period free from duty.)


Union Plus Free College Program

Union Plus is making it possible to get a free two-year degree from an accredited college, with no out -of-pocket costs for tuition, fees or e-books.  All credits will be transferable if you choose to go to a four-year degree.  

AFA members, as well as Retirees, spouses/domestic partners, children, grandchildren and more are eligible.  Go to the Union Plus website for more information.


Reminders…

  • Effective Saturday, August 17 (0600 local time), Flight Attendants will be prohibited from consuming alcohol for 12 hours prior to reporting for duty (currently 8 hours) and anytime while on duty.
  • New Required CBT due by October 6th.  For more information please visit the MEC website.  
  • We continue to hear problems with galley pay getting ‘deleted’ from the pay register, after a pairing is modified for hotel gainsharing or other reasons.  If your pairing gets modified for any reason, please ensure galley pay, LQ, LIP, etc. is still reflected in your pay register.  If not, contact Payroll to correct, and let us know.  Thanks. 
  • Emails:  If you have not registered your address with us, or if you've changed your email address recently, please make sure to let us know!  Email your name, file number, and new email address to afanrt@unitedafa.org (If you already get our emails, or newsletter there is no need to do this).  Please keep in mind that you should avoid using your @united.com email address when communicating/emailing with the Union, as that address is monitored by the corporation, and the contents will be not private.  

Legalities (September)

 

Please refer to section 6.T of your contract for all duty time limitations. Outbound flights are for NRTSW reference (visiting Flight Attendant legalities may be different).

*Please note: All times are subject to change. The Narita International Airport curfew is from 2300 – 0600, with an aircraft pushback by 2245, unless (due to unusual circumstances) the curfew is extended by the NAA.*
