9.27.12 – (LAA) – International Training for Domestic FAs Subject to Reserve



APFA Call To Action 9.27.12

Required International Training for Domestic FAs Subject to Reserve
The Company is about to begin International Training for Domestic Flight Attendants that are subject to Reserve. This is in preparation for a merged operation per the newly-ratified contract.

This Training is expected to last at least 12-14 months, and will involve up to 440 Flight Attendants per month. APFA’s goal is to avoid an increase to the Reserve List, which would have been significant, and to allow those Domestic Flight Attendants, who are not subject to Reserve, access to these Training Slots as well.

APFA was able to convince the Company to build lines that will reflect specific Training Days, Duty Free Periods, AVBL days, and DO’s, so that those Flight Attendants who either proffer or are drafted will be able to bid for these lines and plan accordingly. In order for the lines to be posted on the Bid Sheets, the Proffer/Draft will Open and Close at the beginning of each month, prior to the month of the Training.

These lines will include:
75-Hour Guarantee
4:40 Pay and Credit for each day of Training
Relief Rules (RL) for AVBL days
