United offers jobs to furloughed flight attendants
- Photos (1)
Chicago-based United Airlines says it has found a way to keep 688 flight attendants it had planned to furlough.
The airline says it will offer all of them jobs in its Continental unit. The two airlines merged in 2010 and both fly under the United name, but they still have separate flight crews.
The airline has said it has too many flight attendants on the United side and not enough on the Continental side. A plan to move flight attendants from one to the other was rejected by the Association of Flight Attendants.
The company, United Continental Holdings Inc., is going around the union with its latest move. It will offer flight attendants jobs at Continental on April 1, the same day they are furloughed from United.
