Scheduled for implementation on October 1, 2018, our JCBA will include Ratio-in-Guarantee (RIG) protections, which provide for additional pay and credit beyond the sum of the flight time within pairings, when applicable. Duty RIG is a guaranteed minimum pay credit based on the amount of time that we spend on duty, whereas Trip RIG is a guaranteed minimum pay credit based on time away from domicile. 

Our JCBA provides for two (2) different RIG minimum pay protections: 

Section 6.a.1-3 - Minimum Duty RIGs

A Flight Attendant who departs on a flight shall be guaranteed minimum pay and credit as follows: 

  1. A minimum of one (1) hour’s flight time pay and credit for each two (2) hours of duty time, prorated 
  2. A minimum of five (5) hours flight time pay and credit for a one duty period pairing 
  3. A minimum average pay and credit of five (5) hours per day for pairings with multiple duty periods (e g 5/10/15/20) 

Section 6.b. - Trip RIG Time Away from Home

When a Flight Attendant is scheduled to report for duty or actually reports for duty, whichever is later, she/he shall receive a minimum of one (1) hour’s pay and flight time credit for each three and one- half (3 1/2) hours elapsed time, prorated, until return to the blocks at her/his Domicile and release from duty. Both Duty and Trip RIGs are considered when determining the value of a pairing.

Additionally, if multiple RIGs exist within a pairing, they are evaluated independently, compared to each other, and then compared to the pairing’s flight time to determine which overall value is the highest - with the highest value becoming the value of the pairing.
