As a reminder, when weather affects your commute to work you are protected contractually.
If you are working under the CRJ CBA you are protected under Section 28.O. the Company is obligated to work with you for the purposes of removing him/her from scheduled duty if your home/domicile is involved in a natural disaster. Each situation is evaluated on a case by case basis for attendance policy applicability.
If you are working under the ERJ CBA, you are protected under Section 3.W.2.b. if you are unable to report to work due to hazardous or impassable roads resulting from severe weather.
Please provide as much documentation as possible to show the hazardous or closed roads in your area, such as news reports or pictures and give as much notice to the Company as possible while keeping in touch with your grievance representatives.
If you’ve experienced a contractual violation please email your local lodge representative as soon as possible with all supporting documentation.
As always please put your safety first and if you have any questions or concerns please contact your local grievance representative.
