Per the most recent IAM-Fleet Service contract, the company may outsource Fleet Service work at stations with less than 69 weekly mainline departures.
Mainline stations eligible to be outsourced are ALB
, MDT, MSP
, ORF, PHX
. Also, current Mainline Express stations may also be outsourced.
Note that this is for IAM-Fleet Service work only. The CWA was able to maintain better scope provisions for its work.
Affected employees will be eligible to exercise their seniority to move to another city. If they do not choose to do that, they will be eligible for severance pay, health insurance, and travel benefits, depending on seniority.
I would assume that the contract employers would generally be open to hiring ex-US Airways employees, but that's not in the contract.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
