What Does the Grievance Committee Do?
The purpose of this committee is to advocate for non-probationary Compass flight attendants’ facing disciplinary action and to challenge contract violations by the company on behalf of all Compass flight attendants. The grievance committee is also charged with reviewing each case individually to ensure that any incident is truly a grievance, and does not fit only the criteria of a frustration or gripe.
Why Would I Contact the Grievance Committee?
AFA Grievance reps are your first point of contact if you are facing a discipline situation or feel that there has been a contract violation. In either case the contract specifies specific time periods that a grievance can be filed.
- Discipline Issues: The Grievance Committee upholds Compass flight attendants’ rights as ‘Just Cause’ employees. If you are a non-probationary flight attendant facing an Investigatory meeting, you have the right to an advocate.
- Contract Issues: Any contract violation affects all Compass flight attendants. If you see or are affected by such a violation, the Grievance Committee will address that issue with the company. You do not need to be off probation in order to have your contract issue or violation addressed.
Flight attendants that are off probation can be represented by an AFA during an investigation meeting with the company (if one is available). Flight attendants also have the right to have a witness present if a grievance rep is not available. The company is under no obligation to inform AFA Compass when investigatory meetings are scheduled. A Grievance Representative must be requested by the flight attendant if they wish one present.
