Hurricane Irma was an extremely powerful and catastrophic storm that impacted the lives and schedules of thousands of our members – especially our Florida residents. For those who have been affected by the storm, APFA has reached an agreement with the Company to offer our Flight Attendants some non-contractual, one-time options that may provide relief and offset any time that may have been lost.
A Letter of Agreement (LOA) was reached with the Company that provides protection for Flight Attendants who were affected by Hurricane Irma.
The provisions of the agreement include, but are not limited to:
- Compensation protection
- Attendance/dependability protection
- Consideration for those who incurred a severe hardship as a direct result of Hurricane Irma
- Vacation interruption protection
- Reserve Guarantee Protection (within specific time frame)
- Provisions for affected Florida commuters
If you are a MIA-based Flight Attendant or a Florida commuter who lost time as a result of Hurricane Irma, please refer to this LOA for the options available to you.
Flight Attendants wishing to exercise any provisions outlined in this letter should notify their Flight Service Manager (FSM) no later than Saturday, September 30, 2017.
Situations that fall outside the parameters listed in this letter will be handled on a case-by-case basis with your FSM.
