    Full-time IBT-represented mechanics and related employees who are at least 45 years old with at least 15 years of service as of the assigned effective date will be eligible to participate. Effective dates will be either September 1 or October 1 for United Services employees, and November 1 for Airport Operations employees who are approved for the program. The last day of employment for participants will be August 31, September 30 and October 31, respectively.



    Applications for the Early Out program will be accepted between July 23 and August 1. All applications must be received by 17:00 Central time August 1.



    Full program details and application forms are available on SkyNet's United Services and Airport Operations department pages.

    Well I guess this is the IBTs first test.

    Only 8 more months till you can file to go back to AMFA if they dont deliver.

    Instead of bringing jobs back in house more jobs are being eliminated.

    The Early out package doesnt have much, will the IBT be able to squeeze a little more out of UAL?

    Their first test was the 'promised' Teamsters pension. They failed
    2nd test was the promise to reopen the contract, the company said 'NO'. They failed again

    JMHO,
    Who is going to organize?
    The UAL M&R are too fractionalized and the organizers are pretty fed up with them.
    They wanted the teamsters, let em have it! :shock:

    IMHO, Nope :down:

    Take Care,

    Ronin -

    Screen name for a UA mechanic that left a couple of years ago during/after the last contract 'amendment' in BK.
    Very tenacious but knowledgeable!
