Reassignment - English

  1. 1. Air Canada Component of CUPE Educational series<br />
  2. 2. This seminar contains sound. Please ensure your volume is set at the appropriate level.<br />
  3. 3. If there is any variance between the material presented here and the Collective Agreement, the Collective Agreement shall be deemed to be correct. <br />All material presented here is without prejudice or precedent to any position the Union may take in the future and is the most accurate information available at this time.<br />
  4. 4. reassignment<br />Knowing your rights protects you!<br />
  5. 5. reassignment : why?<br />Reassignment can occur as a result of a cancellation, consolidation, substitution , misconnection or illegality at <br />Home Base, except illegality <br />caused by block overlaps.<br /> B10.01<br />
  6. 6. reassignment : why?<br />Consolidation occurs when two flights are combined into one. If additional crew are required to complete the crew complement, the crew on the flight number which does not operate will be added to the crew of the flight number which does operate.<br />Substitution refers to a change in aircraft type. (usually a downgrade) <br />Illegality at Home base refers to not having legal crew rest between pairings at Home Base. It does not refer to walking off / booking crew rest.<br />
  7. 7. reassignment : why?<br />Booking off may also cause you to be on reassignment as per article 9.07 of the Collective Agreement.<br />REASSIGNMENT – Where an employee, as a result of a book off due to illness, falls below his/her applicable minimum monthly guarantee for that month s/he will be subject to reassignment…<br /> 9.07<br />
  8. 8. reassignment : who?<br />B10.02 CREW ASSIGNMENT – Where Cabin Personnel are affected by an aircraft substitution, redesignation or consolidation, they shall be assigned to the flight that operates, in order of seniority, subject to classification and language requirements and aircraft complement as follows :<br />
  9. 9. reassignment: who stays?<br />B10.02.01 – Substitution – The scheduled crew<br />B10.02.02- Redesignation– The scheduled crew on the flight redesignated as an extra section.<br />B10.02.03 – Consolidation – The scheduled crew on the flight whose designator is used. Additional crew will be provided from the scheduled crew on the other flight involved.<br />
  10. 10. reassignment : who goes?<br />B10.02.04 – General : Reserve Blockholders shall be assigned after the regular blockholders on the flight.<br />
  11. 11. reassignment : misconnection<br />B10.03 MISCONNECTION : Where an employee is required to report to cover a projected misconnection, s/he shall operate the flight if the full incoming crew is not actually onboard twenty (20) minutes prior to the forecast departure. The “forecast departure” for the purpose of this Article is deemed as the forecast in effect (or current departure time) at the time of the incoming crew’s arrival at the aircraft<br />
  12. 12. reassignment : misconnection<br />B10.03.01 – Not withstanding the above, should contact be made with the incoming crew upon arrival (either initiated by the Crew Resource Centre or the crew), the outbound flight departure time at that moment will be used to determine if the incoming crew will misconnect regardless of the actual subsequent departure time. Where the incoming crew does not operate the flight, they must contact the Crew Resource Centre on arrival, and will be subject to Article B6.03 – Reassignment.<br />
  13. 13. reassignment : misconnection<br />B10.03.02 – If, for whatever reason, neither crew (incoming or replacement) is on board twenty (20) minutes prior to departure, the first crew actually on board the flight will operate. In any situation, should arrival be simultaneous, the incoming crew (as opposed to the replacement crew) will operate the flight.<br />
  14. 14. reassignment : how?<br />You may be reassigned to any type of flying available at that time, not necessarily the same type of pairing as the one you lost. <br />You may not be reassigned a flight which schedules to you exceed your maximum duty period. B10.02.05<br />Reassignment is given out prior to 100 hours or reserve. B7.04<br />
  15. 15. reassignment : how?<br />You may only be reassigned for the calendar days you had been originally scheduled to work. B6.03.05<br />If there is an irregular operation away from home base, you may be assigned to dead head or operate back to Home Base on a day off. B6.03.04<br />Maximum Monthly Limitation B5.01<br />
  16. 16. reassignment : at the airport<br />When you are being reassigned and you are at the airport at home base, the Company may reassign you immediately or ask you to stay on airport standby for one hour. B6.03.01.06<br />When you are being reassigned at the airport and you are not at home base, the Company may reassign you immediately or ask you to stay on airport standby for two hours. B6.03.02<br />However, it is important to note that the flight the Company reassigns you to may depart later than the one or two hour period, as long as you are not scheduled to operate outside of your duty day. B6.03.02.01 & B6.03.01.06<br />
  17. 17. reassignment : at the airport<br />If you are not at home base and you have completed your two hour airport standby, you should be deadheaded home on the first available flight. Upon arrival back at Home Base, you must contact crew sched and may be assigned a flight, as long as it is not scheduled in such as way as to exceed your duty period. B6.03.02.02<br />If you are reassigned to deadhead, your assignment may be changed to operate that flight or any other flight to that same destination. This change does not constitute a draft. B6.03.03<br />
  18. 18. reassignment : at home<br />If your flight cancels in advance, you must call in to crew scheduling the night before the originally scheduled departure of your flight, during the call in period. The current call in period for all bases is 20:00-23:00 local. B6.03.01.02<br />If you are on crew rest during this period, you must call in within one hour of the termination of your crew rest. B6.03.01.03<br />You may be contacted by crew scheduling and assigned a flight prior to the call in period. B6.03.01.04<br />
  19. 19. reassignment<br />Once you have been reassigned a new pairing, that pairing becomes part of your block and cannot normally be changed. (except in the case of deadhead reassignment) <br />You may also be drafted off your new ‘reassigned’ pairing.<br />However….If a flight in the new <br />pairing cancels, consolidates, etc., <br />you may subject <br />to reassignment again.<br />
  20. 20. reassignment : credits?<br />As a Block holder, you are always guaranteed to receive either the credits for what you operate or the credit of your original pairing, whichever is greater. B6.04<br />If you are a reserve block holder, you will receive the credits of what you actually operate only or your minimum monthly guarantee (70 hours), whichever is greater.<br />
  21. 21. reassignment : in charge credits<br />Because In Charge flight attendants get paid different rates of pay based on the type of aircraft operated, it is important to note that In Charges will receive the greater dollar value of either what they actually operate <br />or what they were <br />scheduled to <br />operate.<br />
  22. 22. reassignment : in charge credits<br />For example, if you were scheduled to do a 3 day pairing with 16 hours of credit on an B777, the dollar value of your original pairing is calculated as follows: <br /> 16 hrs x $66.59 = $1065.44<br />If this pairing cancels and you are reassigned to do a 3 day pairing with 18 hours of credit on an A320 the dollar value of your reassigned pairing is calculated as follows: <br /> 18 x $55.91 = $1006.38<br />Therefore, you would get paid the 16 hours on the B777 pairing, because the dollar value is greater, even though the credit hours are less.<br />
  23. 23. Irregular ops are stressful for everyone, but knowing your rights is half the battle. For more information check out our website at:<br />www.accomponent.ca<br />You can contact your Component union officers directly via email or by posting on our online forum “galley talk”!<br />
