The pay data below was compiled by JetBlue Inflight Crewmembers in an effort to better educate our work group. Not once in the history of JetBlue has Management provided clear, detailed and transparent pay comparisons like the ones below to us. Why is that? Management claims we are “peer set” average but the truth is we are below the industry average pay from 70-95 hours. It’s important to understand that peer set average is when Management chooses which airlines to compare us to—our Inflight Frontline Compensation Advisory Team (IFCAT) does not decide this.
Will the Inflight Frontline Compensation Advisory Team (IFCAT) be provided the contracts, including pay scales from all the airlines to see how we truly compare to the rest of the industry? How can they advocate for us if they are left in the dark and given limited information by Management?
Will our work group be provided clear, transparent and detailed pay comparisons like the ones provided below or will we be simply be told that we’re “peer set” average and given one confusing graph to try and make sense of?
Our Inflight Frontline Compensation Advisory Team cannot collectively bargain over pay or anything else. JetBlue is under no obligation to share with them how much they are truly investing in us. Only through our Local Union would we have real control over pay and so many other things that are important to us. If you are passionate about pay or anything else you should sign a card and help us get cards—it’s the only way to have a vote. Only then can we form our Local Union and work towards our own contract.
Detailed comparisons to print and share!
We have no interest in putting out false, misleading or inaccurate data so if you find something wrong or would like to challenge the data by all means please do so. The margin of error is low because the data was taken straight from current pay scales and tentative agreements, plugged into Microsoft Excel, then the numbers were crunched.
