Round One Vacation Awards Re-awarded & Round Two Vacation Bidding Extension
November 14, 2017
Over the course of this past weekend, a small glitch in the Round One vacation award program, affecting less than 1% of all Flight Attendants, was identified and steps were taken to determine the impact of the program anomaly. Following a review of all the factors and in consultation with AFA, it was determined that Round One vacations for 205 Flight Attendants, in 13 bases, would need to be modified as the result of a re-award to ensure Flight Attendants were awarded vacation periods consistent with the terms of the JCBA.
Flight Attendants at the following 13 domiciles were impacted by this modification:
The impacted Flight Attendants have been notified via their united.com email, or CCS message, where applicable. In addition, each of these 205 Flight Attendants will be personally notified by the Vacation team.
To ensure that all Flight Attendants have sufficient time to submit their bids, the company and AFA have reached agreement to extend the Round Two vacation bid period until Friday, November 17, 2017, at 0800 Home Domicile Time (HDT).
The Vacation Team will extend their hours on November 14-16, 201,7 until 8:00PM Central Time in order to answer any questions you may have.
Flight Attendants should review the Vacation Allocation Charts, which outline the days still available in Round Two as some allocation dates may have changed as a result of the re-award. The charts are located on CCS under the Bidding Tab Menu, select “myVacation” and click on To view Vacation Allocation Open Days link.
