Union Dues Obligation while on Special COLA Exceeding Ninety Days
June 24, 2020
As we all know, Flight Attendants across the system are volunteering for the Special COLA opportunities in a continuing effort to assist the company during this period of time while flying is reduced as a result of the COVID-19. 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 controls the duration of any dues obligation and may be subject to change based on any changes made to those Bylaws.
