Close of December Bids Delayed Three (3) Hours at all locations except GUM.
November 16, 2022
Late this afternoon, management released a CCS communication to Flight Attendants advising that high usage of the company monthly schedule bidding software, UBIDs, has resulted in a "sluggish" response from the system. In our conversations with management, we've been advised that Digital Technology is aware of the problem and has been working to restore the timely functionality of UBIDs. These efforts continue.
Based on the advocacy of AFA, management and AFA have mutually agreed to delay the close of December schedule bids by three (3) hours at all locations except GUM. (At the time the problems presented, schedule bidding for GUM had already closed.)
December schedule bidding will now close at 11:00 AM Home Domicile Time for all locations except GUM where bids have already closed.
