In the United Airlines Lay off workers will be asked to leave as a second round of layoffs announced this year. The first round ended Friday, during which time 137 workers were asked to leave.

As per the news, United Airlines said in a statement released Tuesday: "As we reduce the size of our fleet and take actions companywide to enable United to compete in this challenging economic environment, we must take the difficult but necessary step to reduce the number of people we have to run our business."

How will the employees of United Airlines be asked to leave after the United Airlines Lay off Job Cut?
A seniority system is in place and the United workers with the least time of service are the first to be laid off. Many of the workers had been assigned the Boeing 737, but United is grounding the older fleet and so that work is going away. They also need to honour the state law that 60 days' notice be given of layoffs, United said in a letter to an official of the California Employment Development Department dated Sept. 29 that 414 employees at the maintenance facility will be laid off Dec. 7 or within two weeks beginning that date. The letter, obtained by The Chronicle, said United cannot predict whether these layoffs will be temporary or permanent.
