Discouraging the Opt-in for CCS 7.Q.1 Reassignments

Date: September 29, 2022

Earlier this month, United announced their intent to implement a voluntary, non-Contractual method of receiving notification through CCS for reassignments pursuant to Section 7.Q.1. of our Contract instead of speaking with crew scheduling on the phone through the well-established notification process.

On September 9, we addressed this announcement and the fact that implementation of this process did not involve discussions with the Union. We continue to assert that while this option may appear on the surface as being a win-win, it has significant potential ramifications that are beneficial for the company and detrimental to Flight Attendants.

At this time, we continue to strongly discourage you from participating in the “opt in.” If, however, you have opted in, keep in mind you will have done so for the October bid month and will not have the ability to rescind your decision for the month.  For this reason, we want you to be aware that you also have the ability to change your mind and “opt back out” by changing your selection before the October bid month begins at 0001 this evening.
