500 Furloughs Mitigated
Following a preliminary review of the Overage Leave, Modified Partnership Flying and Travel Separation Program ballots the company has agreed they will be able to address the current overage in full with these voluntary options.
Therefore no one who received a subject to furlough notice will be furloughed. This is tremendous news for all of our members.
Thank you to the hundreds of Flight Attendants that submitted ballots for the overage options that saved our colleagues from involuntary furlough.
Awards should be available by 1600 CT on Thursday February 23.
