Job Share “Split” Reminder
January 22, 2020
Following the award of February schedules, we received a number of questions and concerns from Flight Attendants about the timing of the processing of the line splits for those in a Job Share. Because there appears to be some confusion, we offer the following review:
· Within 48 hours after a line of flying (Primary or VRL) has been awarded, Flight Attendants are required to divide the line using the form available from Help Hub.
· All requests must be submitted by 0800 CT on the 20th of the month for primary line awards and by the 25th for VRL awards. If not submitted by the respective deadline, the company will split the line for you.
It is important to remember that the first opportunity Crew Schedule Planning has to apply the splits to the Job Share line is the morning of the 18thafter all lines have been house kept into the system. Crew Planning makes a diligent effort to process line splits as quickly as possible but there may be times when the processing may affect the timing of a Flight Attendants ability to participate in mutual trades.
Please review the COLA, Job Share and Multiple-Month Partnership Program Overview Handbook which explains in detail how to conduct the line-split on Help Hub, the time frame Job Share partners have to complete the line-split and all other Job Share JCBA provisions.
