BrownTailGuy said:UPS has sent a letter to the Pilot Group telling us that it has no plans to furlough till at least the end of 2004
I've been swimming since July '01. A few people sent me e-mail regarding this announcement...thinking this might be a sign that UPS is gearing up to hire. That would be great, but what exactly is the implication of the above quote? Is UPS saying according to current staffing and planed A/C aquisitons/reductions and pilot retirements that it might again become necessary to furlough at the end of '04? If that's the case, it wouldn't seem likely that any hiring would be imminent for several years.
