Over the past several weeks there has been quite a bit of discussion regarding the unsolicited use of telephone information that is available on our Master Schedules in CCS. In particular, concern has been expressed about unsolicited text messages that are being sent to flying partners soliciting trips trades and mutual trades. In some cases, these text messages are being sent while Flight Attendants are on layover or at home while Flight Attendants are trying to rest.
While our individual telephone numbers are available to facilitate contact, we should be considerate when sending unsolicited text messages to those who may be in other areas of the world or who may be sleeping.
For those who do not wish to receive these text messages, we remind you that you have the ability to restrict the telephone numbers available in CCS. Ultimately, you are able to restrict access to your telephone number by restricting who is able to view your schedule.
In either case, this is about being considerate of each other. Unless provided specific information “to call or text” regarding trade possibilities, consider sending an e-mail which can be addressed by the recipient at her/his convenience without disrupting legal rest.
