  • Nearly 3,000 United pilots who were slated to be furloughed later this week will keep their jobs.
  • The mitigation agreement, announced by the Airline Pilots Association and United on Monday, also avoids the furloughs of another 1,050 pilots that were slated for next year.
  • At United, the pilot agreement will involve work sharing, with active pilots accepting reduced duty hours — and, in effect, monthly pay — in order to spread the remaining work among all members.
