Before December 12, 2019
Being that this is the first time the company is providing opportunity for job shares and regular one-month COLAs under this JCBA, Flight Attendants are strongly encouraged to review the provisions in JCBA Sections 15.B., 15.N. and Section 16 in addition to reading the “COLA, Job Share and Multiple-Month Partnership Program Overview” guide available on our website, unitedafa.org and on Flying Together.
This upcoming January One-Month COLA:
- Because this is a COLA, Medical benefits are not offered at active employee rates
- If awarded a COLA, you will NOTbe expected to fly a carryover trip into the January bid month
Additional administrative changes for job shares are that Reserves will have more options for splitting their lines as well as the procedure for job share partners splitting their awarded line. Once awarded a job share, go to Help Hub (search keyword: Job Shares) to submit the form designating how you would like to split your line award.
As a reminder, job share partners split the line award of the senior partner and each partner is limited to a monthly maximum of fifty-five hours (55:00) pay and credit.
Awarding Process for January One-Month COLA & Job shares
One-month COLAs and matched job share requests are combined into a single list by base in seniority order and are awarded during the same process.
Matched job shares are awarded based on the seniority of the senior Flight Attendant partner.
Both flying partners must submit a bid identifying the partner to be considered for a matched job share.
All matched job shares are awarded in conjunction with one-month COLAs in seniority order. If additional company time off remains, available unmatched job shares will be paired, and remaining COLAs will be awarded in seniority order.
More information, including detailed instructions on submitting requests for COLAs and Job shares can be obtained in the "COLA, Job Share and Multiple-Month Partnership Program Overview”guide.
Additional details about all Leaves of Absence, including related benefits, timelines and pay can be obtained in the “LOA Packet”found on our website, unitedafa.org.
