As of 11:00am CST on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, management has designated Thursday, August 31, 2017 as a White Flag Day at EWR-NTA-NLS-CLE-SFO-SLS-SFI-LAX-LAI-LLS-IAD-WTA-WLS-ORD-DEN for Flight Attendants scheduled under the pmCAL Contract.
After this designation, Flight Attendants straight picking up, (no trading) a pairing originating on August 31, 2017 from open time at these locations will qualify for white flag compensation as provided for in Section 4.B.2. of the 2012- 2014 pm CAL Contract.
As outlined in Section 5.G.5.a.(2) of the 2012 – 2014 pmCAL Contract, because White Flag Pay requires a special pay code, the pairing must be picked up manually through a call to Scheduling in order to be paid the applicable special pay rate of time and one-half. All out of base pick-up rules apply.
White Flag Pay is for hours actually flown. You must be in position and operate the pairing or, if cancelled, be reassigned for pay protection.
