Three-Hour Call Out For Reserves At Co-Terminal Bases
APFA is pleased to announce that, effective July 2nd, the company has agreed to the implementation of JCBA Section 12.H.1 – Minimum Reserve Call Out Time.
A Reserve would be required to report at co-terminal bases within three (3) hours from the time s/he is notified of an assignment from Crew Schedule. This does not refer to sign-in time or departure time. It means the Flight Attendant must be at the airport in 3 hours. The language in JCBA is as follows:
Section 12.H. MINIMUM RESERVE CALL OUT TIME
1. A Reserve shall be required to report within two (2) hours from the time s/he is notified of a sequence by Crew Schedule. If a Reserve reports to the airport after check-in time for the sequence, s/he shall receive pay and credit for the sequence as if s/he had checked in for the sequence at the same time as the rest of the crew. As an exception, Reserve Flight Attendants at co-terminals shall be provided three (3) hours call out.
This will affect the LAA Make Up (MU) timeline. Currently, MU must be offered up to three (3) hours prior to departure and after that time, Short Call MU may be offered prior to assigning a Reserve who then has two hours to report. Recognizing that Short Call is important to both the Flight Attendants who utilize it and to Crew Schedule for coverage, we have agreed that when Section 12.H.1 is implemented, MU would be processed up to four (4) hours prior to departure at co-terminal bases, instead of three (3) hours. And then, Short Call would be offered at all co-terminal bases prior to assigning to a Reserve, who will have three (3) hours to report.
All other LAA base cities would have a two (2) hour call out, and Short Call MU would remain the same as it is today.
Current LAA Co -Terminal Bases are:
LGA / JFK / EWR
MIA / FLL / PBI
LAX / SNA / ONT
DCA / IAD / BWI
SFO / SJC
