The Weekly Dispatch – Held Out of Service

If you have been advised that you are “ Held out of Service” this means that the employer has utilised Article 14.01 of the Collective Agreement which states:  “Where disciplinary or discharge action is contemplated because an employee’s behaviour is considered to constitute a threat to safety, fellow crew members, passengers and/or the Company, or that his/her presence at work is unacceptable from a passenger service point of view, the employee may be held out of service for not more than seven (7) consecutive calendar days in order to conduct a thorough investigation.” If you are advised that your status is changing to HOS we recommend that you reach out to your Local office for support as soon as possible. They can advise and guide you through the process.
