CQ/RQ Training Required for Flight Attendants While on Special COLA
September 16, 2020
Sections 15.B.3. & 15.C.2.
Effective October 1, 2020, Flight Attendants on Special Company Offered Leave of Absence (COLA) are required to attend CQ/RQ training as indicated in the most recent Special COLA packet published by the company.
As provided for in Section 15.B.3. & 15.C.2. of our Contract, the company may require a Flight Attendant to attend training while on (Special) COLA provided that the requirement to attend is made known to her/him prior to accepting the leave.
Training can be scheduled by contacting FAST (1-800-FLT-LINE) option 4, then option 2. Flight Attendants that do not schedule themselves for this training while on Special COLA will be assigned to attend by the FAST. Because you will not have a line of flying while on Special COLA, you must call to schedule yourself as you will not be able to pick up training from open time.
If you have questions about your CQ/RQ training, access the Inflight Training page.
