Will Be Offered To 400 Ramp Workers, Customer Service
United Airlines and the International Association of Machinists
(IAM) announced last week they have come to an agreement on an
opportunity for eligible customer service and ramp employees to
voluntarily separate from the company. The program will be
available for up to 400 customer service and ramp employees.
Employees who are at least 45 years old and have at least 15
years of service with the company as of September 7, 2008 will be
eligible to participate. Participants will be entitled to severance
payments based on years of service and retiree travel benefits,
an agreement United reached with the flight attendants
union last month to cut up to 600 positions.
"As we move forward with our previously announced capacity
reductions, this agreement with the IAM will assist us in
mitigating the impact of involuntary furloughs on our IAM
employees," said Scott Dolan, senior vice president - Airport
Operations and Cargo for United.
United says it will continue to explore "viable alternatives" to
furloughs, as the airline moves to slash its ranks in a desperate
attempt to stay afloat in troubled economic times.
