March 2020 – One- and Three-month COLAs
February 2, 2020
Late into this evening, we continue to advocate for management to be prepared to award additional one- and three-month COLAs for the month of March. As our Members learn about the impact of the changes to the March schedules resulting from the suspension of service into China, we are encouraging management to allow those who would like to have time away from work the ability to be awarded time away.
Flight attendants interested in a 1-month or 3-month Special COLA starting with the March schedule month may submit their request through CCS.The bid period for these leaves closes at 08:00 CST on February 6th.
United will continue to monitor the development. While United’s current plan is to resume flying to China from each hub on March 28, the situation is fluid and continues to develop. As additional information becomes available, we will share that with you. In the meantime, United will have opportunities to provide time away from work. If you are able to do so, you may want to review the COLA packet on the company’s website.
