My guess.. very few will take the re-call.
Rumor has it that of the recent recalls they're only getting about 25% takers. Since they start at the top seniority on the recall list they've gone through many of the guys who furloughed voluntarily. Many of these guys had stuff lined up before they left so few are coming back. In the next 700 it will probably be mostly involuntary furghloughees so it may be that they get a little higher return rate. The problem is it's too easy to find better job security, dayshift with weekends off, and comparable pay and benefits. In addition many of the laid off mechs didn't have that much seniority anyway so unless they've just completely struck out in their job search there's little incentive for them to come back.
