With UPS announcing the possiblity of up to 300 pilot furloughs, can anyone indicate the approx. hire date of the the most junior and the most senior of those 300 pilots (i.e., the hire date range of those 300)?

Thank you for the response. Let's hope that nobody on that list sees a furlough. Let's hope it's nothing more than big talk from the company.

Whatever happened to the threat of 700+ FEDEX furloughs? Are these furloughs needed or is this yet another attempt to try and lower pilot costs when they aren't really needed?

Is this official or more speculation?

I think FedEx is at a reduced line guarantee. I'm sure UPS looked at that and wants a cut from the pilots.
It's up to 300 pilots or cost savings of 54 mil.

"In a meeting held with UPS officials, the Executive Board was informed that the Company—as part of a company-wide cost cutting initiative—is considering the furlough of up to three hundred (300) IPA members. According to the Company, we would be given the contractually required 90 days of written notice on June 1. This furlough notice would, at the same time, include the publication of a system bid. It is through this bid that UPS would implement the furlough ninety days later, on September 1"

I know your not advocating concessions. I'm speaking to the general population. If you give them money or other concessions to prevent furloughs then the company will create a pattern of threatening furloughs every other year in attempt to money grab. If any companies management were worth their pay they could create cost cuts without putting good folks out on the street and reducing the safety margin on the line. No pilot group should take one single concession from here on out, good times or bad. No single segment of any pilot group should justify screwing over another segment for their personal gain. Make management lead instead of just managing and rubber stamping. No more pilot group made bandaids. No more wishing for another airline/pilot groups demise. If we can do all that our profession will be much better off down the road.

Does anybody live in LouuuUHville by choice? If so why???
Well, Probably because cost of living is cheap. And if youre' a 4 Year FO at UPS you could just Bid Reserve at 81hr and 140.00hr. And like my buddy fly about 260hrs a year.......


Hmmmm, where do I sign up?

Do I know you? Because you just described the last 4 plus years of my life. ;)

One could also say the same thing about MSP, DTW, TEB, EWR and on and on......

After living in 18 different states and 3 different countries, I've pretty much figured out that the place doesn't matter... it's what you make of it. SDF really isn't that bad and the cost of living is pretty cheap.

That is part of the problem. Getiing paid 140K per year for only working 260 hrs is ripping your company off!!!!

Doesn't that depend on how much money your company is making?

Being on Reserve isn't working?


You might be the only one here having a problem getting paid this. Experienced, College Educated, Military Training......... I think that is the correct pay for their job!

So really, thinking like you is PART of The PROBLEM!

WSurf, don't pay any attention to instructordude. He also wears his airline pilot uniform when he spanks the monkey.
