- Thank you for filling out our Negotiations Survey. Continue to send feedback directly to the Negotiating Committee.
- What is the best pay system: TFP? Block? Duty? Or…?
- There are several trends when comparing pay systems.
- Our goal is to negotiate the best possible contract with the best possible pay.
There is plenty of discussion on the line (and online) regarding contract negotiations. Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out the Negotiations Survey (62% turnout)! Continue submitting feedback directly to the committee through the Negotiations Feedback Form. A recurring theme from discussions and the survey is whether TFP, Block, or Duty is the best method for calculating pay. It’s no surprise there are strong proponents of each system. Our Negotiating Committee recognizes pay is a priority.
Several trends emerged from our comparisons of the various pay systems, proving no single system is guaranteed to pay better:
*This comparison of TFP and Duty includes a ratio of 1:1. It’s very unlikely to achieve this conversion rate.
The important question: TFP? Block? … or Better? Let’s think outside the box: Rather than focusing on TFP vs. Block vs. Duty, let’s consider a better system with improved pay rules. Regardless of what we fly each day, we deserve better pay. Block is great, so is TFP, so is Duty – all depending on the situation. A hybrid system would capture the best of all three, ensuring Flight Attendants are justly compensated for all types of flying.
So… Block? TFP? We can do Better!
