I heard that all current Midwest employees will become Frontier employees so that there will only be one employer, F9, for the Republic branded operation. To me, this is a brilliant move which should eliminate the "it's us vs them" mentality that develops sometimes under merger/consolidation situations.

Assuming this is true...I think there are a bunch of pilots at US who would tend to disagree with you.

I'm not talking about pilots. I'm talking about non-union employees. Pilots are always a "whole different animal".

Does this have anything to do with Republic bringing all of those jobs to Milwaukee or is the fact of all YX employees becoming F9 employees something completely different? Thanks to anyone who can clear this up.

I think it's a matter of consolidating payroll.



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

Well I just used that as an example. I don't think the employees of any airline that gets swallowed in a merger ever really get over it. I know a lot of NW employees who no matter what will still know who came from where. I just don't think that merging payroll will change anything. That's just my opinion.

They are integrating them for payroll and 2010 benefit enrollments. No point in having 3 different schemes for that stuff.


There are 3 types of people in this world, those that can count, and those that can't.

That's a good point, however this move is a good first step.
20 years down the road there will be benefits as memories fade and people retire.



First, benzene in my Perrier, and now this!

So only non union members of YX are becoming F9 employees. Does this mean none of them have seniority then to worry about merging with F9 Employees?

I ask since they still have company seniority, or is RW merging ALL F9/YX Company seniority into RW's company seniority?

Republic has already merged the customer service and reservations employees lists so that all Frontier/Midwest/Republic employees are on one list. Only the YX employees are switched to F9 for benefits and payroll. The employee's original seniority date will apply for benefits and shift bids, I think.

Are there any YX pilots left?
