Recall from Furlough – How’s it done?
July 15, 2020
We’re hearing there may be some inaccurate information circulating regarding recall from furlough status and how that is accomplished.
Remember, voluntary furlough is bid. Involuntary furlough status is assigned. If it is necessary to recall Flight Attendants from furlough status, those on involuntary furlough status are recalled first. Recall from Involuntary furlough is accomplished in seniority order, that is, most senior first.
Once all Flight Attendants on involuntary furlough status are recalled, then Flight Attendants on voluntary furlough status are recalled in inverse order of seniority, that is, most junior first.
We are working to clear up any misunderstanding.
