August One and Three-Month Special COLAs Deadline Extension Now July 6
June 29, 2021
United is offering one (1) and three (3) month Special Company Offered Leaves of Absence (COLA) consistent with the requirements of our Contract. Flight Attendants interested in either of these Special COLAs should submit their request via CCS using the Leaves drop down menu and, once there, selecting the Special COLA tab.
The deadline to submit your request has been extended to July 6, 2021 at 0800 AM CT. Flight Attendants who are successfully awarded one of the Special COLA options will be notified prior to the opening of the August bidding window.
Both the one (1) and three (3) month Special COLA options will include medical benefits at active employee rates. Additionally, pay and vacation longevity are not impacted for step increases.
As a reminder once the Special COLA is awarded it cannot be rescinded. To learn more about how to bid for a Special COLA in CCS, review the Special COLA Overview section in the COLA, Jobshare and Multiple Month Partnership Overview, located on Flying Together > Inflight Services > Crew Scheduling.
