Temporary Measures for Trip Cancellation Notifications
March 24, 2020
The recent revision to the airline schedule is resulting in the cancellation of many of our trip pairings later in the month. Crew Scheduling must take action on these cancelled pairings before the pay protection shows up in our Pay Registers. In Fridays edition of E-lines, we communicated the following temporary measures for cancellation notifications during these very unique and challenging times:
- As the cancellations begin to appear in your schedules, please DO NOT call Crew Scheduling unless the trip affected begins on the current day.
- Crew Scheduling will work through the cancellations in chronological order and will make reassignments as needed.
- If you are reassigned to replacement flying, Crew Scheduling WILL reach out to advise you of the reassignment.
- If you are NOT reassigned, you will NOT be placed on RX days. Under the provisions of Section 7-Q-3, you will be relieved of your responsibility for reassignment.
- Should you be relieved of your responsibility to be reassigned, there will be no reassignment visible and RLSE and PROT will appear on your line for the affected trip.
- Crew Scheduling will NOT contact you if RLSE and PROT appear on your line for the affected trip; you are released with full pay protection.
- No reassignments will be made after 2200 the night prior to the first day of the original cancelled pairing.
Additionally, payroll for the month of March closes as of April 6, 2020 so there is still plenty of time to complete transactions to ensure that all of the pay to which we are entitled is included in our March Pay Register.
