Deadhead Rescheduled to Work Clarification

Earlier this year AFA and United reached an agreement as part of the Implementation Dispute Resolution process to address the contractual process by which a Flight Attendant may be re-assigned from deadhead to working status on the same flight. The understanding of the company and the Union is as follows:

Management may reschedule deadheading Flight Attendants to work the flight in order to:  

1.    Maintain Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) required number of Inflight Crew,       including any required augmentation, and

2.    Reschedule Flight Attendants up to United’s Established Staffing Guidelines (“ESG”) to prevent understaffing.

It is important to note that nothing in the settlement limits United’s right to supplement additional staffing above the ESG through the creation of additional open positions, that is pairings that are made available to the Membership via open time.

Additional information including examples can be found in Elines published on January 1, 2019 and available @ www.unitedafa.org.
