Details of the Commuter Policy can be found in Section 28 of the JCBA. Specific circumstances under which a Flight Attendant may be unable to report for a scheduling assignment include:
- Un-forecasted severe weather conditions or other natural disasters (i.e., blizzards, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other similar events), or
- Hazardous or impassable roads resulting from severe weather, accidents, or natural disasters, or
- Mechanical problems while on the way to work, or
- Unexpected airport disruption(s) or closures
In order for a Flight Attendant commuting by air to utilize the Commuter Program there are a number of provisions which must be met. Refer to Section 28 of our JCBA or the educational article on our MEC website.
