Collective Bargaining Agreement


Special Assignment Calculation

October 2, 1997

Mr. Kevin D. Lum, President

UAL/AFA Master Executive Council

Association of Flight Attendants

6400 Shafer Court, Suite 250

Rosemont, IL 60018


Dear Mr. Lum:

In the application of Section 4.Q., Special Assignment, the parties agree that a Flight Attendant who is on Special Assignment status for a schedule month shall have the entire thirty days (thirty one days, if appropriate) counted as Special Assignment for the purpose of calculating the accrual of Special Assignment days under the one hundred eighty day maximum allowable with continued seniority accrual.

In instances where Special Assignment is for less than a full schedule month the number of days will be determined by multiplying the percentage of the Flight Attendant’s hours for that month which are certed as Special Assignment by the number of days in that schedule month.
