I have been informed by my members that when they sold back their CPDO (unused CPDO for 2019)  they did not get the GEO premium.  As you know GEO premium is paid when the employee uses the CPDO.  I don’t understand why it was not paid when they sold it back..?


Awaiting your reply, Dave

I am aware and I am having to manually calculate this. Payroll does not PDO payouts programmed to pay the GEO. Renae



Legal has agreed that Holiday not worked ( meaning the Holiday falls on your work day, and here at MQT you are not required to report )  does in fact count towards your 40 hours.  Therefore,  all members that worked an extra day the week of the Holiday will receive OT for that day worked.      Legal is going thru Attendance to see who this effected and will pay out as soon as possible.


FYI Dave has filed a grievance on be half of everyone affected by Thanksgiving Holiday OT. For Front side not getting paid OT for one of there days at time and a half for thanksgiving even though up until this holiday the company has paid OT on the weeks for other holidays. The company says they are working but they don’t want everyone calling about there individual pay. So Dave talked To Jose and Jose told him to file on be half of everyone affected.

Good Afternoon,

As you may be aware, Geo Premiums increased earlier this month. Two checks have since been processed to capture the new increased Geo Premiums. Earlier this week, an error was discovered in the calculation of the OT payment rate for some employees. Therefore, the lump sum check issued on 07/19/2019 may not fully capture your specific Geo Premium.

Our internal teams are working to ensure proper over-time (OT) payments are calculated. The corrected amount, which will include Bereavement time in addition to the corrected OT pay rate, will be added to your next regularly issued check on 08/02/2019. We apologize for the confusion and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Should you have any additional questions prior to receiving your next payment, or if additional concerns arise once your next regularly scheduled check is received, please reach out to envoy.attendance@aa.com and we will promptly address.

Thank you,

The Envoy Attendance Team
