Inflight Discontinuing Certain Uniform Products in Anticipation of New Uniform

Management has recently addressed rumors about Cintas “going away” and reductions in the inventory of certain uniform apparel items.  As we move closer to the launch of the new uniform programs in 2019 & 2020, the company will begin to wind down the uniform options that will be available.  A number of items have been discontinued and will only be available while supplies last.

In the event inventory is completely depleted before your order has been processed and causes your order for certain items to be cancelled, your points will be credited back to your allotment for the item.

Returns will only be accepted for size exchanges. If your size is not available, your allotment will be credited for the item. Any items that do not qualify for a return will be returned to you with a credit to you point allotment.

Check the uniform section of the company’s website for a list of the inventory items that have been depleted.

 Master Schedule History & EBB Trade History

Recent communication from management regarding illicit trip trades involving the brokering, buying and/or selling of pairings has raised the level of concern for many Flight Attendants.  We’ve received inquiries from Flight Attendants asking how they can learn if their schedules have been misused for the purpose of facilitating these objectionable trades.

Our trade history can be viewed on the Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB) by clicking on the Market drop down menu and choosing “Trade History”.  Every trade transaction detail will be visible, including dates, time stamps, photos, employee/ file numbers involved, pairing numbers and type of trade.

Additionally, Flight Attendants can view their Master Schedule history by clicking “History” at the top right or the bottom left of your Master Schedule. The Master Schedule History displays details and changes made to our monthly schedule via trading, and changes made by Crew Scheduling.

Flight Attendants needing additional information on Trip Trade procedures and the functionality of Electronic Bulletin Board (EBB) are encouraged to review the specific guides available on unitedafa.org

If you have questions about trade activity in either your eBB Trade History or Master Schedule History, we recommend that you contact your Local Council office in order to consult with a Union representative to ensure you understand the trade history you are reviewing before making any assertions that you line has be improperly used.  All questions regarding trip trade functionality should be directed through your Local Council Office.
