Web Based Training (WBT) Pay Discrepancy - LUS

The Value of Respect (VOR) & Payment Card Industry Standards (PCI) WBT pays $25.00 per WBT event.  Unfortunately, LUS Flight Attendants who completed this training during the months of July and August were not paid as a result of a payroll error related to delayed data transmission. These training events will be paid to the affected Flight Attendants on their September 30th paycheck, in accordance with the JCBA*. The Company will be sending a communication to each affected Flight Attendant. 

Also, please be advised that special WBT programs (except for CQ (CQT or Recurrent) will not appear on the CATCREW pay screen. All other training will be reflected on the pay summary screen as it has in the past. These special WBT lessons are not passed to Payroll through CATCREW, but via the Learning Management tool.

*2014 JCBA - Section 3. COMPENSATION - O. PAY DISCREPANCIES
1. When there is a shortage equivalent to two (2) hours of pay or less in a Flight Attendant’s paycheck, such amount shall be added to her/his next check once the matter is resolved. 
 
WBT Deadline Approaching - LAA/LUS

As a reminder, two separate required Web-Based Training (WBT) modules must be completed by Wednesday, September 30, 2015. You will receive $25 training pay for each completed module. To access the lessons:

LAA Flight Attendants:  In the Online Learning Center, on Jetnet, click “Launch” next to the course title in “My In-Progress Learning.” Verify completion of the lesson by going to “My Learning / My Transcripts.”

Highlighted JCBA Now Available - LAA

A highlighted version of the 2014 JCBA is now available for Legacy American Flight Attendants at APFA.org by clicking here.

We have highlighted the sections that have already been implemented. This should make it easier for you to distinguish between the progress we’ve already made vs. what’s to come.  If an area is not highlighted, you should refer to the 2001 Contract (CBA) as modified in 2003 via the Restructuring Participation Agreement (RPA) and the 2012 Conditional Labor Agreement (CLA).
