The Longevity Premium is paid on all worked TFP. It’s a premium for those at the top of scale (TOS) based on years of service (YOS). All premiums in the contract are paid only on worked TFP. Just like the Reserve Premium and Productivity Premium, the Longevity Premium is not paid on vacation or sick leave. Keeping all premiums the same in the intent and application was important to the integrity of what a true premium is. Premiums are paid when you are flying.
There are two premiums (Reserve and Longevity) that are paid only to specific groups within the seniority list – Reserves and Lineholders that have entered the TOS. The third premium is available for all flight attendants including Reserves and Lineholders who will also be earning their respective premium associated with their placement within the seniority list.
