Q: What does “Trade Jail” mean in management’s opening proposal?
“Trade Jail” from the 2006-2010 CBA Section 12.E and Addendum to Section 12 #2 was related to No-Shows on sequences picked up or traded into from FA trades or Open Time as applicable.
The language reads as follows:
Is there any consequence that relates to a No-Show on a sequence I received through a trade with another Flight Attendant or Open Time?
Yes. If you No Show a sequence you received by trading you will lose the ability to trade with Flight Attendants or Open Time for the next calendar month. Pickups are allowed. For sequences picked up, you will receive only the no-show. (Section 12.E.)
By context we assume that management would like to potentially resurrect trade jail (i.e., inability to trade) under certain circumstances.
