Pay Increases Under the Contract Extension Extension TA?
Q I saw the news about the tentative agreement with the 1.5% increase in pay. I’m confused about this though. Does this mean 1.5% and that is all we will see until a new contract is signed in 1-2 years? Or is there some other step increase that will be honored?
A You will continue to progress through the step rates on your anniversary date just like always if you are not at top of scale. The only difference is that the entire pay scale would also increase by 1.5% on December 17, 2021, if the TA passes. This is the same type of increase that changed the entire pay scale by 2.5% on December 17, 2020 under the current 2018-2021 JCBA. Eligible Flight Attendants at the top of scale will also continue to move to the level of Longevity Premium on their applicable anniversary date.
