Yes! We are absolutely seeking retro pay with our new contract!
Retro (short for retroactive) pay is compensation for the difference between our new pay rates and our old pay rates, paid from the amendable date of the old contract to the effective date of the new contract. What that means all of a Flight Attendant’s paid and credited hours from January 1, 2017, through the effective date of the new contract – when it is ratified by you – will be recalculated based upon the terms of the new agreement. The difference in pay (what we were paid versus what we should have been paid under the new contract) is retro pay.
