Delta now joining Southwest in saying no layoffs or furloughs for rest of 2021, and that is even if congress does not do another PSP for the airlines.
Makes me wonder if United and AA are just throwing the layoffs in the gov face to get more $$$. A push if ya will for more help when, do they really need it??
Maybe United and AA needs to do better leave packages to get folks to take the leaves or stay at home with partial pay packages.

So the company laid off mechanic and related employees from FLL and SJU after closing the two stations with no fight from the asso. what-so-ever. This closure was supposed to be due to the covid pandemic hitting the airlines. So why are they NOT reopening these cities since the PSP came? Therefore these stations were closed just because the company wanted to close them and was not directly tied to pandemic. Where is the asso. fighting for their members rights?? Why are they just allowing the company to keep these Mechanic and Related employees at their current laid-off status?? As stated in the update below. Per the financial aid packages they were suppose to call back "all" affected employees. Where is the asso. on these still on layoff employees??? Why does this asso. always just continue to allow the company to do as they please?
Bring on the AMFA vote ASAP...

Link to update below with added para in bold on the FLL and SJU employees:

http://www.twu-iam.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/TWU-IAM-Association-Bulletin-1.16.2021.pdf

Association represented employees who were affected under Article (6) from the Mechanic and Related or Material Logistics Specialists agreements from FLL and SJU will not be recalled at this time and will remain in their current status and location since the Company has determined they do not intend to reopen those two locations at this time.

As far as Voluntary separations at UA. 4500 total took it effective March14. Of that 517 Teamsters which is basically technicians of all sorts/ inspectors/ facility maint. And 122 IAM in tech ops which I guess is tool room, stock room parts etc.

That was only offered to the union groups at United, and is a pretty good number considering they were talking WARN letters of 13,000 a few weeks back.

i asked 2 different united guys about your latest buy-out, got 2 different answers.

i heard 44 fleet took it in my station...and looks like the company could backslide on date of separation due to adding flights and heavier pax loads.

Going to 2200 flights a day next week
The low number I think was 1400 during the worst part of the crisis
