Great news! Ben is on his way!
Dear Fellow Flight Attendant:
We're happy to report that the Boeing 787 Agreement ratification bonus will be distributed on Tuesday, July 24th. So who gets it?
All Flight Attendants who had In-flight W-2 wages in 2017
Flight Attendants who came online in 2018 and were eligible to vote by July 10th
We will receive approximately 3% of our 2017 In-Flight W-2 wages (less 2017's per diem and profit sharing) with no less than a $200 minimum bonus pay out. Of course, this is all before the 22% tax rate for bonuses.
The Company and our 401(k) contributions will be a part of this bonus.
What about the other provisions?
A few of the items in the Boeing 787 Agreement were to begin after ratification. Below is our working timeline for these items.
Crew Rest – requires changes in the IFM
Flight Deck Entry/Exit Security Procedure – requires changes in the IFM
Additional Crew Rest Station – requires reservation system changes
Crew Meals – A committee will be set up and we anticipate talks starting in September
As you can see, the first three items require FAA approval, which takes about 4 weeks. We will keep you posted.
Our next bargaining session is the week of August 6-10, in Honolulu, Hawai’i.
The Negotiating Committee
