Rapid Re-Accrual of Sick Leave When Returning from Injury, Illness or Maternity

Date: October 15, 2021

Flight Attendants returning from maternity (sick leave), or a single injury or illness absence are reminded, as provided in Section 13.A.5. of our Contract, if during this single absence you have used more than 255 hours of sick leave, you are eligible to begin the rapid re-accrual process upon return to work.   The rapid re-accrual rate is at seven (7) hours each month until the Flight Attendant reach the same level of sick leave they had at the onset of the injury, illness, or maternity (sick leave).

To begin the rapid re-accrual process, a Flight Attendant having used more than 255 hours for a single absence and seeking rapid re-accrual is required, upon return to flight duty, to contact their supervisor who is responsible for submitting the rapid re-accrual request to Crew Pay for validation and set up in a timely manner.

For more information, please contact your domicile supervisor.
