G.O. Staff During Merger

Sun Sep 09, 2012 5:56 pm

I'm curious as to what happens to an airline's general office staff, particularly accounting staff, during a merger? I assume that a newly combined airline can't support the full accounting staff from both airlines. Do the airlines offer an early-out to reduce office headcounts? Or, do they offer everyone a position who may be willing to transfer to the new corporate hdq?

As example would be the recent merger of UA and CO. Were the CO administrative staff all offered positions in Chicago? Or, were staff furloughed? If so, how was that determined between UA and CO staff?

I appreciate only objective, factual responses, please.
