United Recalls ALL Furloughed Flight Attendants
September 15, 2014
Today’s announcement by AFA and United on the details of an Enhanced Early Out Program provides options for Flight Attendants and represents a commitment on the part of the airline to promote operational integration that recognizes the contributions of Flight Attendants to the success of our airline.
This effort to mitigate disruptions caused by the transition to full operational integration provides Flight Attendants an unprecedented Enhanced Early Out Program and recalls all those who are currently on furlough – both voluntary and involuntary – to active duty.
Recall notification letters have been sent today to all Flight Attendants on voluntary and involuntary furlough status. Within fourteen (14) calendar days of receipt of the recall letter, Flight Attendants must notify the company by “certified mail or telegram” of their intention to return to service.
Flight Attendants on Involuntary Furlough status have been recalled to JFK, effective November 15, 2014.
Flight Attendants on Involuntary Furlough status are not eligible to participate in the Enhanced Early Out Program
Flight Attendants on Voluntary Furlough status have been recalled to the domicile from which they were voluntary furloughed, effective December 1, 2014.
Flight Attendants on Voluntary Furlough status who have a minimum of fifteen (15) years bid (SW classification) seniority are eligible to participate in the Enhanced Early Out Program.
If you are unable to return to work due to medical reasons, whether on voluntary or involuntary furlough status, you are required to notify the company of your intention to return to service.
Failure to respond to either recall notice or to report to your domicile as outlined above will result in your separation from the company.
Should you have additional questions, please contact your Local Council Office.
We are all engaged in an effort to ensure the success of United Airlines.
