Minimum Duty and Time Away (Trip) Rigs - Understanding how they interact

Date: September 20, 2019


Sections 6.A.1. – 3. and Section 6.B.

Section 6.B. - Trip RIG or Time Away from Home
Understanding that Ratio-in-Guarantee (RIGs) offer protections for additional pay and credit beyond the sum of the flight time within a scheduled pairing, when applicable, is an important component of understanding how we are paid. Further, our Contract provides for two different RIGs both of which provide for minimum pay protections.  Minimum duty RIGS provide for minimum flight time pay and credit for each two hours of duty time, for one duty period pairings and average pay and credit per day for each day of a multi-day duty period pairing.

Our Time Away from Home RIG ensures that Flight Attendants receive one-hour flight time pay and credit for each 3 ½ hours elapsed time, prorate 

Section 6.A.1-3.- Minimum Duty RIGs
