Provisions of the Commuter Program – Section 28 of our Contract
May 2, 2020
As United continues to respond to the decline in passenger demand resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to see reductions in flight schedules. Those of us who commute to our flight assignments are reminded of the commuter provisions contained in Section 28 of our Contract. Our Commuter Program provides commuting Flight Attendants leeway when their commute is affected by situations specifically delineated in the program – unforeseen weather, mechanical issues, etc.
The program sets forth the specific parameters with which you must comply in order to utilize the protections afforded by this industry leading language. We encourage you to review this language and, if you have questions, contact your Local Council office.
