Sick Leave and Occupational Injury Notification
August 18, 2017
The Joint Implementation Team is targeting the December 2017 bid month for the harmonization of Sick Leave and Occupational Injury (OI) bank accruals under the Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA).
As provided for under Section 13.A. of the JCBA, Flight Attendants will accrue sick leave each month based on paid activity in each designated quarter (September – November, December – February, March – May, June – August) to be credited on a quarterly basis as follows:
Paid Activity in Designated Quarter
Percentage of Accrual
Total Hours Accrued
120 hours or more
119:59 – 60 hours
59:59 or less
As we get closer to the implementation date, we will provide a more detailed explanation of the JCBA sick leave and OI accrual process.
