Discipline and Discharge of Grievances


B. DISCIPLINE AND DISCHARGE GRIEVANCES

1. Discipline will only be levied for just cause.

2. The Company may, upon notice to the Flight Attendant (which notice shall be confirmed in writing as soon as reasonably practical, but in no event later than 5:00 p.m. the next business day after verbal notice) hold a Flight Attendant out of service pending review of the incident at issue. The notice will include the reason(s) the Flight Attendant is under investigation. The Company shall provide copies of the written notice to the persons referenced in Paragraph L.12., below.

3. A Flight Attendant may be held out of service pending an investigation without pay for up to ten (10) business days in cases involving: criminal investigation and/or charges by local, state, or federal authorities or an internal matter which could lead to same; physical violence while on duty; theft; violation of the Company’s policies regarding drugs or alcohol; possession of firearms, explosives or any type of weapon on Company property; or destruction of Company property. If the Flight Attendant does not appear for any Company required meeting during the ten (10) business day period, the holding out of service without pay may be extended until such meeting is held. If the investigation results in no charge against the Flight Attendant, or the results do not warrant a disciplinary suspension, or the results warrant a disciplinary suspension less than the investigatory period, the Flight Attendant shall be made whole for all time lost in an amount which she/he would have ordinarily earned had she/he continued in service during that period.

4. Except for the reasons identified in B.3., above, a Flight Attendant who is held out of service pending an investigation, shall receive pay and credit for time lost in an amount which she/he would have ordinarily earned had she/he continued in service during that period missed until the Company issues precise charges or returns the Flight Attendant to active flight status, whichever occurs first.

5. The Company shall not discipline or discharge a Flight Attendant without giving the Flight Attendant written notification of the precise charge(s) for discipline or discharge. The Company shall send the notice to the Flight Attendant’s last known home address on file with Inflight Services with copies to the persons referenced in Paragraph L.12., below.

6. If the Company fails to issue charges, the Flight Attendant shall: (1) be returned to service without loss of seniority, longevity for all purposes, and benefits and (2) have the Flight Attendant’s record and file(s) cleared of any reference to the allegation(s) involved as if the Flight Attendant had never been held out of service. If the Company receives new information subsequent to the conclusion of the investigation, nothing herein shall preclude the Company from re-opening its investigation or providing the Flight Attendant subsequent notice of discipline or discharge.

The Grievance Committee is composed of members who assist and represent their fellow flying partners. The Committee's primary responsibility is to provide representation to our members in mandatory meetings with US Airways West.  We also provide advise on contractual issues as well as the filing of grievances.  It is important to remember to call the Grievance Hotline as soon as possible after stetting up the time and date of your meeting with the Company.  We do request that you give at least 48 hours notice to the Hotline prior to your meeting as to allow for the assigning of a Grievance Representative.
