Calendar Day ‘RLSD’
June 3, 2020
At the beginning of last month, your reports to your Local Reserve Committees brought to the attention of the Union that some Flight Attendants who were attempting to process certain Reserve day off trades were receiving “1 in 7” error messages that were not consistent with the application of the language in our Contract.
As we researched the issue, we learned the company’s scheduling system was not properly recognizing a calendar day “RLSD” (0001-2359) as a day free from company obligation to satisfy the “one calendar day off in seven” requirement of Sections 6.P. and 8.I.2 of our Contract.
Based on the advocacy of the Union, in cooperation with Crew Scheduling and IT, we have been advised that action has been taken to resolve programming inconsistencies in the company’s scheduling system to ensure that a calendar day ‘RLSD’ will be treated as if a day free from company obligation (OFF) when trading and to satisfy the 1:7 rule.
If you have additional questions, please contact your Local Reserve Committee.
