Miso Scoop - Reminders, Overlaps, Legalities, H&T reporting, 401(k) matching, CAUSE (Oct 13, 2018)

In this edition:

  • Dates to Remember
  • Overlap Pairing Credit (September into October)
  • Overlaps After October
  • Legalities (November)
  • New Hotel and Transportation Reporting System
  • Correction:  Vacation 401(k) deferrals and Vacation Buy Back  401(k) matching
  • CAUSE Foundation

Dates to Remember:

 

Vacation Election Period: Closes 0800 HDT October 15.

Line bidding:  Closes 0800 HDT October 17.

Primary Vacation Bid: Opens 0800 HDT October 23, closes 0800 HDT October 31.

Annual Benefits Open Enrollment:  Closes October 26.

 


Overlap Pairing Credit (September into October):  We are aware that overlap trips from September to October are not credited properly in the October Pay Register. The company is working to manually adjust these, and they anticipate the work will be completed by the 15th.  We will let you know if we receive any further updates.

 


Overlaps After October:  If all flights depart in the ‘old’ month, based on the city of departure, then all flight time credit (credit and block) will be paid in the ‘old’ month.

 

For example, pairing J5003, 29OCT NRT-LAX, 30OCT LAX-NRT both flights will be paid in October, since both segments depart in the old month based on the city of departure.

 

The same pairing departing on 30OCT NRT-LAX, 31OCT LAX-NRT (part of new bid month) would only have NRT-LAX paid in October, and the remainder will be paid in November since the return departs in the ‘new’ month.  

 

In both cases above, since the pairings end in the November bid month, the per diem will be paid as part of the November pay period.

 


Legalities (November)

 

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).  

 

Scan the bar code for a printer friendly copy of the legalities(.pdf) 

 

*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.*

New Hotel and Transportation Reporting System (TVLLOG replacement):  In order to continue to trend and fix Hotel and Transportation issues, we are asking that you submit your reports via the MEC website at https://unitedafa.org/reports/hotel/.  This system will replace the TVLLOG system on Unimatic and a copy of your report will be sent to the LEC.

 


Correction: Vacation 401(k) deferrals and Vacation Buy Back count as paid activity for 401(k) match

We need to correct information previously published following the initial opening of the Vacation Election period.  Both Vacation 401(k) deferrals and Vacation Buy Back are considered wages and are subject to 401(k) Company Matches and Company direct contributions pursuant to the terms of Section 29.I of the JCBA.

 


CAUSE Foundation

 

For those of you who may not know, the CAUSE Foundation is an independent 501(c) charity which was set up to assist United Airlines Flight Attendants and their families worldwide who are in financial distress due to illness, injury, or disability.  

 

Kimberley Steinke and Belva Stallings-Crowell are our local CAUSE Foundation representatives in Narita, and each year they set up bazaars to raise money for CAUSE.  You can also help CAUSE by donating each month from your paycheck, making a one-time donation, or by shopping with Amazon Smiles.

 

To find out about the CAUSE Foundation, events, and what you can do to help, please sign up for the CAUSE Foundation Newsletter.  Thank you all for your support of this worthwhile organization.
