Crew Rest Policy Change
May 21, 2021
Effective June 1, the company is making changes to the crew rest policies. As you will recall, last fall we reached an Agreement with United to adapt the existing crew rest policies to more adequately protect Flight Attendants during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The specific changes can be found on United’s Flying Together page and cite updated recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with a greater percentage of Flight Attendants being vaccinated.
This new policy is set to expire September 13, or if the TSA extends the mask mandate. Additional information is also in United’s Policy and Procedures.
