Union Dues Obligation while on Special COLA Exceeding Ninety Days
April 22, 2020
With the dramatic decrease in flying and earning opportunities Flight Attendants across the system are volunteering for the special COLA opportunities. Depending upon your time away from work, you have different Union dues obligations. Under the AFA Constitution and Bylaws, when a Flight Attendant takes an unpaid leave of absence which exceeds ninety (90) days, she/he currently has a dues obligation for the first ninety (90) days of the leave of absence. The AFA Constitution & Bylaws control the duration of any dues obligation and may be subject to change based on any changes made to those Bylaws.
Flight Attendants with questions concerning dues and how to make payment during the first 90 days of the 5- and 6-month Special COLAs are encouraged to contact AFA Membership Services at1 800-424-2401 X707.
