This message is for pre-merger Alaska Airlines Flight Attendants
Last September, AFA published information about management granting our grievance #36-99-2-24-17 (Violation of Section 15.M.1.a & 2.a, Failure to Allow Minimum Coordination While on Maternity Leave) and grievance #36-99-2-25-17 (Failure to Allow Minimum and/or Maximum Coordination While on Maternity Leave).
Grievance #36-99-2-24-17 applies to the time period of 6/8 weeks post-birth to the 120th day post-birth. It mandates that management follow our contractual provision to allow a Flight Attendant to use minimum coordination with sick leave and/or vacation from 6/8 weeks’ post-birth to 120 days’ post-birth. Previously management required maximum coordination with at least 70 TFP of sick leave monthly.
Grievance #36-99-2-25-17 encompasses 121st day post-birth up to one to eight months leave post-120th day. Again, this mandates that management follow our contractual provision to allow a Flight Attendant to coordinate minimum or maximum sick leave and/or vacation from one month up to eight months following the 120th day post-birth.
As part of the resolution process, AFA is collecting information from Flight Attendants who may have been affected by the grievance. If you were on maternity leave any time between December 2014 and now, we ask that you complete the survey below to provide us with additional details regarding your leave.
If you have already completed this survey in paper form, there is no need to complete the survey again. The survey will be available through Monday, February 12, 2018.
