Q: I didn’t see any mention that our VX files would be wiped up to the past 18 months. Is that in this TA? If so can you point it out please?
A: The L-VX Flight Attendants are currently covered under the AFA VX Grievance Procedures and System Board of Adjustment Letter of Agreement (LOA), which was signed on June 2, 2017. The language from the LOA is as follows:
Corrective Action Eighteen (18) Month Removal
All letters of discipline (warning or suspension) will be expunged after eighteen (18) months after the date of issuance, or, if a lesser period is provided in the letter, the letter will be expunged at the expiration of such lesser period. At the request of the Flight Attendant, the letter will also be removed from the Flight Attendant’s personnel file.
L-VX Flight Attendants are already under the “18 month” rule, unless the discipline they have received has an earlier expiration, then it expires on the earlier date. Under former VX discipline policy, PIP’s had varying time periods. For example if you received a PIP2 for a six (6) month duration, it would be removed at the expiration of six months. The LOA will continue in full force and effect until Full Integration when Section 19 of the JCBA is implemented for L-VX Flight Attendants
