why was the removal of the verbiage “January 1st and anniversary date” removed AND not noted from the new FAPM update when we specifically voted on that verbiage being in the pay package and it was in the FAPM PRIOR to the new update.Erika Robertson (SIA VP)January 5, 2023 at 2:19 pm #15495
Are you referring to SP2308 Compensation? Could you please let me know which revision has “January 1st and anniversary date”? I don’t show that language in Revision 23 (the Revision prior to this one) or Revision 22. I’ve included the 3 most recent revisions below where it talks about pay increases (Prior to Revision 23 SP2308 was last changed during Revision 14):
Thank you and I look forward to your response,

Thank you very much for your response. As only the company has the copies of the FAPM now that it is digital it is almost impossible to verify those documents. However the document that we did vote on, and that is still available says that flight attendants will get a raise on January 1st AND their anniversary date.Erika Robertson (SIA VP)January 7, 2023 at 10:18 am #15497
I can’t comment on the Company’s recordkeeping, but as the Collective Bargaining Unit for SkyWest, SIA has all of our previous contracts. If you would like I can send those to you for you to reference. You would need to provide a personal email address because the contracts will be too large to send through SWOL.
The TA page you included doesn’t mention that flight attendants get a pay increase on Jan 1st and their anniversary (though the majority of flight attendants will). There is a line that talks about when the pay rates will take effect (Jan 1st, in addition to to each Flight Attendants anniversary increase). That means that you read the scale horizontally every Jan 1st and vertically on your anniversary date. To reference the pay scales and the anniversary increases you would need to look at the pay scale. I have attached it below:
