Section 15.M.1. - Jury Duty/Court Witness
February 23, 2019
JCBA Section 15.M.1
As a reminder, our Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA) provides pay protections for Flight Attendants who are called upon to
perform Jury Duty or to be a Court Witness. The language set forth in Section 15.M.1. provides specific information on how Flight Attendants will be paid when called upon to perform Jury Duty. A Flight Attendant is required to inform her/his supervisor no later than forty-eight (48) hours after receiving notice of the obligation to serve. Flight Attendants who adjust their schedules after receiving a juror summons shall only be entitled to receive flight pay loss or pay for missed reserve days, in her/his original schedule.
In terms of pay:
· Lineholder: receives flight pay credit, and all accruals, for any flight time lost due to the requirement to be present for jury duty.
· Reserve: receives pay credit at the daily rate and all accruals for each Reserve day lost due to the requirement to be present for jury duty.
A Flight Attendant shall be available for reassignment on those days not originally for duty which do not conflict with the jury duty assignment.
In addition, after five (5) or more consecutive days of jury duty, or combination of flight duty and jury duty, the Flight Attendant will be guaranteed two (2) additional days off with no loss of pay.
