Impact of Bidding into NAL Schedules on Benefit Premiums
November 6, 2020
Anticipating questions some of us may have regarding how premiums for benefits will be handled for those who are bidding into NAL schedules, we are addressing the issue in advance.
Those Flight Attendants who will bid into NAL schedules (which are to be distinguished from those in the IVFMP who may be assigned NAL schedules) should be aware that premiums for benefits will be payroll deducted from any earnings you may have while in the NAL. In the event you elect not to work during the month, benefit premiums will be gathered into an arrears balance that will be deducted from your next pay check. As with all Flight Attendants who elect to reduce their flying schedule and pay guarantee by trading trips or through discretionary time off options, once you build an arrears balance of $500 you will be direct billed for these premiums by the UABC. If you have questions about your benefits, contact the UABC at 800 651 1007.
