Candidates’ Right to Have Campaign Literature Distributed by the Union or a Union-Designated Mailing Service 

Federal law establishes certain campaign rights for candidates in union officer elections, including the right to have campaign literature distributed to the membership by the union at the candidate’s expense.

The U.S. Department of Labor, which enforces the union election law, has clear rules that unions must follow during officer elections. (Consistent with those rules, Section 14 of the APFA Policy Manual speaks to APFA’s policies and procedures in APFA officer elections.)

Irregular Operations (IROPS)

Section 10 of the Red Book for Scheduling and Rescheduling. Please familiarize yourself with Section 10.J, Rescheduling.
 
Rescheduling is broken down into three main categories:
 
10.J.2: Prior to Report Time
10.J.3: After Report but prior to Pairing’s Origination
10.J.4: After Origination (Departure of First Flight)
 
If you find yourself being rescheduled, please reference the appropriate section above. Red Book section 10.U.5 states that any rescheduling must come from Crew Scheduling, Inflight Management, or the Captain.
 
In addition, in the event Crew Scheduling has open sequences after future or daily processing, they must follow the Priority of Assignment language in Red Book 12.M. This information may also be found in the LUS On Duty Contract Guide, which is available on your tablet.
