    Piedmont is planning to offer voluntary leave to the Piedmont Ground Handling employees using the provisions outlined in the Article 5B with the following enhancements:

    • Employees may continue medical, dental & vision coverage during the leave.  The employee will be responsible for the payment of the employee portion of the premium. Employees will be provided premium payment vouchers containing the monthly payment amount and directions to mail their payment to Piedmont. An employee’s failure to make timely premium payments will result in loss of coverage.
    • Employees shall continue to be eligible for non-revenue travel privileges provided to active team members.
    • Short term leave would be unpaid.
    • All provisions of Article 5B shall apply in granting and returning employees from leave.

    Additionally, Piedmont will offer long term permanent LOAs that will last for a two-year period and will result in permanent separation from the Company. 

    • Eligible employees must be active with 15 years of service.
    • Election period will be March 25 to April 3 (with an option to extend if necessary).
    • Requests will be considered and granted in order of seniority at the station and position where necessary.
    • Employees may continue medical, dental & vision coverage during the leave.  The employee will be responsible for the payment of the employee portion of the premium.  An employee’s failure to make timely premium payments will result in loss of coverage.
    • Employees will be eligible for non-revenue travel privileges according to Company policy (65 point plan for retiree travel if you meet the age and length of service requirements on your exit date).
    • The leave will be unpaid with the exception of accrued and unused vacation that will be paid to the employee upon separation

    If you have any questions, please reach out to me.

    Sincerely,

    Michelle R. Foose

    VP Human Resources
