Flight Attendants who are absent due to Illness or injury for 6 calendar days or less may choose to provide a physician’s note for a 1/2-point reduction of the assigned 2 points for this instance. Flight Attendants who chose to utilize this provision are required under the agreement to obtain a written note from their treating physician or a physician affiliated with company medical department. The physician’s note must include the following information is provided in the content of the note:

  • Date of illness
  • Date of examination
  • Date of return to work
  • Signature of the physician or the physician’s designee on a document that includes, at a minimum, pre-printed physician’s name, address, and telephone number.

Flight Attendants should black out all confidential information (i.e. diagnosis, treatment, condition) before presenting a physician note to a supervisor. Notes must be given on or before the next scheduled pairing or Reserve assignment. Information regarding sickness and OJIs can be found on page 7 of the Dispute Resolution, Attendance and Performance Management guideon our website.

Medical verification for absences due to illness/injury currently required for pmUA, pmCO and pmCMI will remain in effect until Section 13.C. of the JCBA is implemented.
