Understanding Your Pay Stub
Reading and understanding your paycheck can sometimes be a major headache. Although the total amount may seem correct at first glance, it's important to review each paycheck carefully for possible errors. When pay discrepancies occur, there are contractual protections in place for Flight Attendants to be made financially whole in an expedited manner.
The company has advised APFA of an issue applying 757 Aft Galley Position Premium Pay applied. Flight Attendants should review their pay stubs covering the April 2015 bid month (May 15th paycheck) and contact Pay Claims with any discrepancies at (800) 327-0117; prompts 2, 4. If additional assistance is needed, Flight Attendants should contact the APFA LUS Contract and Scheduling desk at (817) 540-0108 ext. 8169. The company anticipates the programming issue will be resolved this month.

"1. When there is a shortage equivalent to two (2) hours of pay or less in a Flight Attendant’s paycheck, such amount shall be added to her/his next check once the matter is resolved.
