ExpressJet Update – Hurricane Irma

Sisters and Brothers:

For those of you who are in the projected path or Hurricane Irma be prepared to invoke your commuter clause.

CRJ – 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.

ERJ – For ERJ flight attendants the CBA protects you under Section 3.W.2.b., if you are unable to report to work due to hazardous or impassable roads resulting from severe weather you will not be assessed with an attendance occurrence. In addition, please make sure you are following the requirements of the Conscientious Reporting aka the Commuter Clause by taking a screen shot of the PBTs showing open seats for two flights that are scheduled to arrive at least one hour prior to your report time. If those flights are canceled, please take a screen shot of the cancellation(s). Boarding passes will not be required for canceled flights. However, if the flights are operating, you must obtain a boarding pass from the airport.

As a reminder, duty day limitations during irregularities are as follows; 16 hours CRJ and 15.5 hours ERJ.

For hotel related inquiries, please contact or call 773-469-8605.

If you are in need of a room due to a cancellation, please call crew scheduling or go to>Crew Member ERJ/Crew Member CRJ>Contact Crew Support>Crew Hotel Concerns.

Please contact your grievance representative if you have any questions.

In solidarity,

Sara Gonzales Marche’ Johnson-Cooper
