October Special COLA Awards

Date: September 17, 2021

In preparation for the award of system schedules for October 2021, management announced the award of a very limited number of 1-month Special COLAS. Those awarded the 1-month October Special COLA should have received a CCS message advising of the award. Keep in mind these one-month awards are in addition to the multi-month awards that included October 2021 that have previously been awarded. As a result, there may be Flight Attendants who were junior to you awarded an October Special COLA because of having taken a multi-month award that included the October schedule month.

Given the company’s need to start the schedule award process based on the timeline outlined in the contract, Special COLA requests on file were reviewed and used as the basis for this most recent award which was accomplished in seniority order until they encountered the first Flight Attendant at the location not having vaccination documentation on file. At that point in the award, the company stopped so as to avoid any seniority violations in these awards. After the effective date, September 27, 2021, the company will again review Special COLA requests on file using the original request list. Additional requests will be awarded, subject to the needs of service, in seniority order among those Flight Attendants qualified for the Special COLA. Anyone who added their name to the Special COLA request list after the bid closing, will be added to the bottom of the list and awarded in first-come, first-served order.

To be clear, those who have not uploaded their vaccine documentation into United systems by September 27, 2021, will be considered non-qualified and will be ineligible to be awarded a Special COLA. Information on the initial Special COLA awards is as follows:
