APFA Executive Committee Passes Resolution to Ballot Membership on Hard 40 – LAA/LUS
As reported last week in a Special Hotline, the APFA Executive Committee (EC) passed a resolution authorizing the balloting of the membership on a Letter of Agreement (LOA) that, if ratified, will allow Flight Attendants the flexibility to drop below 40 hours via the Electronic Trade Board (ETB) and Trip Trade System (TTS).
The agreement includes yearly sick & vacation accrual thresholds as well as a yearly threshold to maintain employment.
The provisions of the agreement would be effective for all Flight Attendants concurrent with Flight Attendant Operational Integration (FOI). Prior to the implementation of the agreement, LAA and LUS Flight Attendants will continue to follow the provisions of their respective agreements.
Sick and Vacation Accrual Threshold:
- 420 Paid Hours in a calendar year (Effective concurrent with the 1st day of FOI)
- 480 Paid Hours in a calendar year (Effective concurrent with the 1st day of the calendar year following the implementation of Preferential Bidding (PBS) for ALL Flight Attendants)
- 240 Paid hours in a calendar year (Effective concurrent with the 1st day of the calendar year following the implementation of PBS for ALL Flight Attendants)
