The fun is just starting. At least the East is use to it. Nothing new. 165 Easties and 35 Westies out the door.
This is sad, I just saw this on CNBC (or Bloomberg). Sounds like the old fable of burning the furniture to heat the house.
US Airways cutting 1,000 jobs and focusing flights on its 3 hubs
Where would a 1/18/1999 (east) hire have sat when the dust settles? I'm morbidly curious.
On the street still if AWA didn't buy their sorry A**es. Way to go USAPA. Keep paying Lawyers while more jobs are lost. With the already agreed upon vacation in the new contract that would equate to 300 more East Jobs. Guess that DOH seniority list is worth more pilots losing their jobs. IDIOTS!
with nic in place not one original AWA pilot would be furloughed. all Soon to be almost 500 furloughees would be east pilots. there is a reason awa wants the list implemented.
And not one of those 500 furloughed from the East had a job at the time of the merger and thats why they were below the West pilots. That's why nic placed them where he did. That's where they belong. Keep holding on to your DOH MCDU. Or get a contract and have immediately 300 jobs back with the Nic. Only u Easties can decide.
when the list was handed out by the senile old man in 2005 all recalls had a chance at coming back, they all had jobs in May of 2005. The furloughees replaced east positions due to the retirement age, which somehow the westies feel entitled to. The only reason East was hiring and recalling was due to East retirements. Those jobs belong east.
