Have You Been Assigned an Illegal Red Eye? Let AFA Know!
It has come to the attention of Council 35 that crew scheduling has violated the Virgin America Interim Improvements Letter of Agreement regarding red-eye procedures. Many reserves, lineholders, commuter policy users, and those re-scheduled from DRA procedures have been assigned pairings that violate the language and intent of the LOA created last spring. Management has acknowledged the error and has agreed to compensate those that have been forced to fly an illegal pairing involving a red-eye. If you have been assigned an illegal red-eye pairing, (i.e. red-eye turns, red-eyes after a transcon, or 3 legs prior to a red-eye) retroactive to May 1, 2017, please provide AFA with a copy of your pairing and a description of the circumstances. AFA has requested compensation in the form of premium pay for all those affected and for the practice to cease moving forward.
If you have a violation to report, please send all supporting documents and information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to provide documentation is January 31, 2018.
Your Council 35 Officers – Melissa & Jamie
