Letter of Agreement (LOA) Signed Regarding Location Delay Incentive (LDI) – LAA/LUS
Last week a Letter of Agreement (LOA) was signed modifying the language of the JCBA regarding Location Delay Incentive (LDI). The reference in Section 14.M.7 to a delay greater than twenty-four (24) hours will be changed to a delay of twenty-four hours or greater.
An additional modification ensures that once our crews report for a delayed departure of twenty-four (24) hours or greater they will still qualify for the LDI pay even if the door closes prior to the twenty-four (24) hour posted departure time.
The modified paragraph will read as follows:
When a Flight Attendant is delayed departing from an IPD station for more than ten (10) hours from the scheduled departure time for reasons such as mechanical or failure of an inbound aircraft to arrive, the Flight Attendant shall receive an incentive of an additional five (5) hours of pay and credit, including all premiums in addition to the value of the trip. Once the delay is twenty-four (24) hours or greater, an additional five (5) hours, including all premiums, will apply for each subsequent twenty-four (24) hours or fraction thereof. Once the crew reports for a delayed departure of twenty-four hours or greater and the flight departs early or the door closes prior to the twenty-four (24) hours, the five (5) hours will not be rescinded. Should greater pay protection be provided through Illegal Through No Fault, Last Trip of the Month or Crew Substitution, the provisions of Paragraph M.7 may be waived to accept the greater pay protection.
