Have you heard anything about potential Alaska Air layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Andy email this morning. MDs and Ds going back ahead of vaccination. Then all employees back to office in June once vaccines are available. I guess the big bosses are expendable. Sounds right, haha. After a year or working remotely though with... — read more
i heard about 1 or 2 people getting the ax. work going offshore. any more?
Heard about some layoffs this week over at LAX ramp and ground crew. Haven’t seen anything more in the news. Anyone hear what happened this week?
So the first of many call went out yesterday. Surprised to see the flailing "leadership" begin the cuts with long-term solid members of the Alaska team while they continue to ignore real health threats from Covid-19 Method of conducting the purge is... — read more
No company wants to be the first to furlough but it’s going to be inevitable. How deep the cuts go is still to be determined. How long the furloughs will last will be longer than most would want. Nobody is flying. Everyone is scared to fly. This will... — read more
Bailouts are preventing layoffs now but that restriction ends in September. Modeling shows a best case return to flying at 10% reduced capacity but more likely 25% reduced capacity through the end of the year and into next. Listen carefully when Ben... — read more
Contractors gone. Schedules gone. Bailouts don't allow furloughs. What about layoffs? Can they still do permanent reductions? Cut employees that got poor performance ratings?
Internal message from Brad yesterday and memo from Shane confirmed pay cuts for all non-union. And elimination of the entire contractor work force.
I can't believe there are people who are naive enough to think even for a second that this leadership will do everything it can to avoid layoffs. Are you kidding me with that??? Or do you think people who are not part of plane crews don't matter???... — read more
At least not yet. From what I saw so far, the things that are being done or considered include a hiring freeze, borrowing money to get us through the following few months, and suspending share repurchases. I'm a little worried about the unpaid... — read more
What'd be your preference... Things are not good, not at all.
Let me make this clear from the get-go, I love working at Alaska Airlines. This place has good pay, excellent benefits, and the people I work with are amazing. But lately, I’ve noticed that when it comes to leadership positions, they keep choosing... — read more
Where is this taking us? How will be the rest of the year.
What do you think? Is this Corona Virus going to impact earnings for airlines?
What's the total headcount? How many employees work at Seattle?
Do you think there may be small/medium/large Alaska Air Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Hearing same thing. Early 2020. Reducing layers of management and consolidating managers.
Looks like more people from Arch and Secops and couple Sev teams are getting laid off. Can we get more info on this?
More layoffs coming - Primarily in IT
week after IT layoffs, there was layoff in HR. whos next?
We got lucky this time, no layoffs at our department. How did everybody else at Alaska Airlines do? How many total were cut?
I can talk about IT only, not sure about everything else and how things will be affecting operations. On the IT side, there will be more outsourcing (if you are affected by outsourcing, you probably already know what’s in store)… Layoffs will happen... — read more
March 18 lay-off. March 19 re-org announced. Outsourcing and more layoffs to follow in spring. Any more info on this, please? Is this new info that came from a credible source or is it just more guessing based on rumors that circulated some two... — read more
Overhead CISO saying layoffs happening March 19th. He was saying it will be bigger than people are thinking because they are making room to hire new skills.
Several directors and many long term employees were laid off 10/29/2018, with their last day at the company 11/2/2018. Cost reduction from their hefty salaries, bonuses, and benefits, however, most important to Alaska is the management head count... — read more
I am really sad to see several very talented folks, with 10+ years with the company, leave. I wish you all the best.
Do you predict that there will be Alaska Air Layoffs in 2019?
Confirmed in response to poor performance layoffs will come early on Monday the 29th. Action will be swift with effective termination dates of Nov. 2nd.
Just announced by a manager in a meeting at Seattle Maintenance and Engineering
Things are not improving and we might see job cuts in Seattle.
We had laid off 10% of the workforce in 2008 and 2009 due to recession. Unions really did not help here. We were paying massive bonuses for the C-Level folks while we were cutting pretty much at all (except executive) levels.
I hope Alaska will not be letting pilots go like some other airlines (e.g., American Airlines)
