When calling in to place yourself on sick leave for a pairing or Reserve day, you may either call the Flight Attendant Support Team (FAST) or use CCS to send in a sick notification. To access the Sick Notification function, in CCS from Scheduling > Sick Notification. To instantly send a notification placing yourself on sick leave, you must call by 0900 HDT of the calendar day prior to a scheduled pairing, training assignment or Reserve availability day provide as much notice as possible, but at least 8:00 hours prior to your scheduled departure time, except in an emergency, giving as much notice as possible. After 0900 HDT of the calendar day prior to an eligible assignment, Flight Attendants at all bases (excluding GUM) must call the FAST team directly to place themselves on sick leave.
Flight Attendants returning from a sick leave must call FAST in order to come off sick leave status. While this has been a standard procedure used by some of us in the past, it is a new procedure for others with the full implementation of Section 13.B. of our JCBA.Flight Attendants must follow the Call On/Call Off procedures anytime they will be calling to place themselves on sick leave or calling off of sick leave to return to duty.
NOTE: Flight Attendants who do not call FAST advising that she/he will be returning from sick leave status will remain on sick leave status until notifying the Company of their ability to return to work by calling off sick leave.
