Message from contract enforcement

DID YOU KNOW...
1. Section 4.U. of the 2015 CBA includes an added provision which provides 1 CH of pay for aircraft ground operations performed for a purpose other than flight during a trip or base standby. For example, if during a trip you complete an engine run-up to facilitate maintenance of an aircraft, you may be eligible for an additional 1 CH of pay. If you think you are due the additional compensation, please submit a pay log.

Section 4.U. Taxi Pay
1. A pilot who reports for or performs aircraft ground operations for a
purpose other than flight, not during a trip or base standby, shall earn 3
CH or duty rig, whichever is greater.
2. A pilot who reports for or performs aircraft ground operations for a
purpose other than flight, during a trip or base standby, shall earn 1 CH
in addition to all other compensation due. This additional 1 CH shall be
payable upon the pilot’s submission of a pay log.
2. An originally scheduled R-24 base hotel standby trip cannot be revised to include additional base hotel standby periods.  Section 25.M.3.a.vii.(b) was included in the 2015 CBA to prevent this type of scheduling.
Section 25.M.3.a.
vii.       If, due to a shortage of non R-24 pilots, an R-24 pilot is needed
in his base for shorter notification, he may be assigned
to base hotel standby for a block or a portion of a block of
R-days.
(a) Any assignment to base hotel standby will be for a minimum
of two days and a maximum of four consecutive
days and shall cover the RP for which there is a shortage.
(b) The pilot’s originally scheduled R-24 base hotel standby
trip may not be revised to include additional base hotel
standby periods.
(c) If the Company assigns a trip to a pilot placed in base
hotel standby under this provision, and the trip terminates
after the conclusion of the original hotel standby assignment,
the pilot shall be deemed to have completed the
hotel standby assignment and shall return to his original
R-24 schedule.
(d) Any assignment to base hotel standby shall be made in
leveling order, as provided in Section 25.M.6. An R-24 pilot
shall not be assigned to a base airport standby without
first having been assigned to base hotel standby.
