Personnel-FileUnder both the ERJ and CRJ CBAs, Flight Attendants have the right to have negative/derogatory documents removed from their file once they are older than 12 months for ERJ under Section 16.C.3. or 24 months for CRJ under Section 26.A.4.  In order to have your personnel file purged of negative materials outside the 12 or 24-month terms (for your respective CBA), please contact your local grievance representative(s).


Update – Social Media Policy
submitted by Sara Gonzales

social mediaDisciplinary meetings regarding Social Media Policy infraction allegations continue to be setup system-wide on both the ERJ and CRJ sides of the operation.  While we are responsible for adhering to the Company’s Social Media Policy, if you are disciplined unjustly, whether too harshly for the infraction or if what was posted on social media didn’t violate policy, we are fighting those issues and plan to continue that fight.  As always, it is your right to bring a union rep with you anytime you have a meeting with management.
