March 23, 2021
Yesterday United announced they would be offering Special COLAs beginning May 2021. The durations available are 1, 2 and 3 months. Bidding is open now and will close Thursday April 1 at 0800 CT. Awards will be published prior to the May bidding window. Any requests on file may be awarded at any time before the May bid month starts if slots are still available.
These Special COLAS will include medical benefits at active employee rates. Additionally, pay and vacation longevity are not impacted for contractual step increases.
Flight Attendants interested in bidding may do so in CCS under the drop-down menu “Leaves” and select Special COLA. Once a COLA is awarded it cannot be rescinded. If you are awarded a Special COLA you will be required to complete any overlapping assignment. In the event you do not wish to fly your overlap trip you have the ability to adjust your line through the normal process.
