Governor Pritzker has issued a “shelter in place” starting Saturday March 21st through April 07, 2020. This applies to all residents of Illinois with the exception of those that fall under the essential classification. What does that mean for our members? American Airlines and the airline industry are considered vital to our economy. This order does not affect the work we do and we continue to report to work as scheduled.
The company continues working on adjusting the staffing needs by offering VTO, VLOA and Early Out. Please make sure you are reading all the information provided in Jetnet and fully understand the guidelines to each offer. Changes throughout the airports have become noticeable and will continue until the Coronavirus has been contained.
CWA continues to work with American Airlines in making sure all members are protected. These are trying times for everyone and we understand the strain of the uncertainty of tomorrow. The E-Board is here to assist with any questions or concerns. We encourage you to take care of yourselves and each other. We are all in this together and we will see better days.
