Makeup Sick Leave for Contractual Kin Care Implementation
Section 13.D.7. of the Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA) is currently in effect and Flight Attendants may use the provisions that are currently in their respective pre-merger Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA) for making up sick leave to restore their sick leave bank.
As a reminder when a Flight Attendant wishes to use this provision they must follow their current procedures for calling in sick, making sure they advised that the occurrence was for contractual Kin Care. This action will cause this occurrence to be paid and treated as a sick call in terms of accountability. Following that, a Flight Attendant can designate a trip or trips as make up sick leave using their existing pre-merger process, so that her/his non-occupational sick bank would have the hours restored that were used for the contractual Kin Care occurrence.
Join Frontier Airlines In Their Push For A New Contract
Our Frontier Airline Flight Attendant AFA Sister and Brothers will be protesting at three major airports on Thursday, November 3, 2016, as they press to reach a new Contract.
Frontier recently announced its plan to hire 800 Flight Attendants and 300 Pilots by the end of next year in order to expand to new destinations. Even as the airline grows, the operation has been plagued by operational issues, stemming from its January 2015 decision to outsource thousands of jobs.
If you are in or around any of these cities, we ask that you stand in uniform with our AFA Sisters and Brothers.
November 3rd picketing details:
- Orlando (MCO) — Terminal A, Level 2 and 3 Outside Frontier Ticket Counter and Baggage Claim, 1:00 pm
- Chicago (ORD) — Curbside between Terminal 2 and 3, 10:00 am
- Denver (DEN) — Door 691-607, 1:00 pm
Happy and Safe Flying!
