It has been brought to the Unions attention that Inflight is informing Flight Attendants that once the commuter clause has been invoked, you are required to notify your CFA. Per the CRJ CBA, LOA #1.3.d., it is required that Flight Attendants notify Crew Scheduling. There have been coding issues and Flight Attendants have received a miscellaneous occurrence versus the Company using the commuter clause code. If you are a commuter and this has happened to you, email your CFA and cc your Grievance Representative, include on the subject line Commuter Clause Coding. You will need to provide dates you have used your commuter clause as this will ensure each time you have invoked the commuter clause, it has been coded properly. Please don’t hesitate to contact a Grievance Representative if you have any questions.
- If a commuting Flight Attendant anticipates she/he will not arrive at her/his domicile in sufficient time to report for her/his assignment because of a delay or cancellation of her/his commuting flight(s) or because of the unavailability of a seat on her/his commuting flight(s), she/he will notify Crew Scheduling as soon as possible. The Flight Attendant must specifically inform the Crew Scheduler that she/he is invoking the commuting Flight Attendant policy. The commuting Flight Attendant will, upon request, provide the Crew Scheduler with the carrier, flight number and departure time of her/his commuting flight(s). The commuting Flight Attendant will then make every effort to report to her/his assignment location as soon as practicable unless directed otherwise by Crew Scheduling.
