    Retiree medical or a least a bridge to 65 is what will get people to go. The 100 grand is only one years salary That would only get people to leave a year earlier, unless they had other interests.Guess this buyout dispels any idea that UAL is worried about an AMT shortage in the future

    Care to elaborate.
     
    This is the first I am hearing of this.
     
    I have a feeling this s an interesting story.
     
     
    Exactly. People come on here to vent.
     
    Most of this forum is blame, negativity, and complaints.
     
    You know that is true. It is not even debatable.
     
    Rarely do people recognize on here what they have gained from the job (the truck, the house, the remodeled kitchen).
     
    I was not making potshots DallasConehead as there was no ill intent.
     
    It was simply an observation.
     
    I think if you took a step back and look at what I said objectively you will see I was right.

    Quite an interesting first post. I haven't heard a word about that and strongly doubt it's authenticity.

    Dispels nothing, UAL has offered similar early outs for all employee groups for years.  
     
    This article should dispel any notions that there isn't a shortage of AMTs - not just here, but worldwide. http://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/blogs/torqued-higher-ed-needs-address-looming-pilot-and-mechanic-shortage

    I didn't expect anything different. We just sit back and take it. When enough of us say enough is enough then maybe we will rise and do something about our dysfunctional association.

    I saw a few fleet service clerks asking questions, but was a little surprised there were not any mechanics questioning Parker.
