12.26.17 – (LAA/LUS) – Critical FA Staffing Shortage at LAA Bases

 

 

Critical FA Staffing Shortage – LAA

The Company has notified APFA that they have now invoked Article 9.L of the contract in response to a critical staffing shortage at all LAA bases with the exception of RDU:

Article 9.L of the Foundation Document refers to the Order of Open Time Coverage and it allows Crew Scheduling to assign trips to Flight Attendants on Duty Free Periods (DFPs) once certain steps are reached.

Step 6:   Allows the Company to assign regularly scheduled Flight Attendants at the base in reverse order of seniority provided there is no conflict with his/her scheduled duty-free period.

Step 7:  Allows the Company to assign Reserve Flight Attendants on a scheduled duty-free period.

Step 8:  Allows the Company to assign regularly scheduled Flight Attendants on a duty-free period, in reverse order of seniority.

The Company is required to notify APFA when steps six (6), seven (7), and/or eight (8) have been reached.

Step 8 has been reached at BOS, DCA-AA, DFW, LAX, LGA, ORD, SFO, SLT, & MIA

As a reminder, in order to assign Flight Attendants on their DFPs, first party contact has to be made. If you are contacted by Crew Scheduling and you answer your phone on a DFP and identify yourself, that is considered first party contact.

Also, if contacted on a DFP, always be aware that per FAA regulations, no person may act or attempt to act as a crewmember of a civil aircraft within eight (8) hours after the consumption of any alcoholic beverage.
