Understanding the Interaction between Guarantee and Minimum with Vacation
March 24, 2020
Given the unique circumstances this month where the company and AFA were jointly committed to keeping as many Flight Attendants working as possible, we reached an understanding that provided the company with a contractual accommodation that permitted management with the ability to complete the line construction process with lines having an average below the 69 hour requirement set forth in Section 7.A.3. of our Contract while, at the same time, ensuring that Flight Attendants awarded lines with value of less than 71 hours are paid 71 hours based on the requirements of Section 4.C. of the Contract..
As a result of this accommodation and the resulting lower line averages, there are a number of questions arising about how vacation interacts with Guarantee and the 71-hour. minimum pay protection. We have developed a number of scenarios that are intended to increase understanding of the various interactions. Review the Guarantee and Minimum Interaction document.
