Going to be over 8? Follow these steps...
Follow these steps during the morning go-arounds. The carrier is required to inform management as to how long the carrier thinks the route will take to carry each day. Verbally inform management. Ask for a form 3996. It MUST be given to you...if not, see a steward.
Management can disagree with the carrier estimate, but ultimately, the carrier has a requirement to inform and management has a requirement to manage with three choices:
1. Give the carrier assistance,
2. Authorize the carrier's overtime, or
3. Have the carrier curtail mail.
Notice that harass and shame the carrier into meeting management's numbers is NOT one of the options.
