2015 Vacation Accrual and Vacation Bid

2015 Vacation Accrual and Vacation Bid   As we approach the contractual timeline for our annual Vacation bid, we face an unusual circumstance. While we have been accruing vacation time in 2014 for use in 2015, there is no AirTran operation in 2015 therefore, there are no 2015 Vacation weeks to be awarded.


We are aware the recent outage at the Chicago TRACON had ripple effects throughout most airlines' systems.  While AirTran's exposure was mostly limited, it did result in several crewmember reassignments and schedule adjustments.

Moving Expenses

We know many of you have questions about Moving Expenses upon crossing the SWA partition after completing SMT.  We've compiled previously published information into one communication to help.  If, after reading this information, you still have questions, you may contact TWU for contractual questions at communications@twu556.


HOW TO REQUEST ABSENTEE BALLOTS   As a reminder, the General Election will be held Tuesday, November 4. The last day to register to vote is Monday, October 6. Many Flight Attendants anticipate being away from home on Election Day, and it's quite simple to request an absentee ballot. Follow the link below, and follow the directions.
