I did not see this anywhere, so here goes. I was told that US Airways informed the staff at PIT that all US Airways Express work will be out sourced and that Full-time agents w/ 31 years or more seniority will be furloughed to Part-Time. I am sure someone on here has more information.

You mean that US still has EXPRESS operations at PIT?

There was the article about PIT reducing mainline staff. I still cant understand why PIT didn't become an Express run station when PSA was still there. Could of easily just transferred it to a Piedmont operation.

PIT is one of eleven mainline stations to see reductions in workforce. Granted, most of the reductions will occur in PIT, with all Express ground handling work being outsourced.

I think you'd find that US has Express operations in just about all domestic stations.

I am a little puzzled by this. This was an express handled station not long ago, then US made it an all mainline handled station, now they are going back to express. Why did US even change it in the first place?

BOS, BUF, BUR are three I can think of off the top of my head. BUF is the second hardest hit station after PIT. Many of them are former HP stations though and the staff reduction is maybe one or two people.

PIT had both Mainline and Express Operations. PSA was the Express ground handler minus the E-170's. There was some rumours around 2005-2006 that PIT would likely become an Express run station working the mainline side and PSA's employees would become Piedmont. This never happened. In the end PSA lost ground handling and Mainline took it over. If anything now I see contract ramp taking over and in all likely hood Piedmont would bid it.

Add LAX, MCI, ELP, SJC, OAK, MEM, MKE and ROC.

I would guess when they reduced the mainline flying a few years back, it was how they worked through mainline employee issues. Most of the reasons union mainline stations loose work is high cost, high absenteeism, high work related injuries. Not saying that is the case here,but just saying.
