December Schedule Month Special COLAs Cancelled only at EWR
November 6, 2020
Management has announced, due to higher than anticipated demand, Special COLAs will be awarded only in GUM and LHR for the December schedule month. Further, only at EWR, the company will cancel all awarded Special COLAs for the month of December consistent with the provisions of Section 16.C.3. and 16.B.7 of our Contract.
Under our Contract, the company may cancel Special COLAs by base and must provide Flight Attendants with a reasonable amount of time for return to work and, as a consequence of the cancellation, the company shall not cancel another COLA in EWR for two (2) years following the month in which the COLA was cancelled.
We want to ensure we avoid any confusion. All other Special COLAs awarded at any of the other bases & satellites remain in effect. This cancellation affects the 118 Flight Attendants at EWR who were awarded a December Special COLA as part of the three-month Special COLA award from October.
