Following through on their July 2018 transition announcement, Chicago-based United Airlines, has chosen July 2019 to initiate laying off 100 employees in its passenger revenue accounting department located in Houston, Texas. The jobs will be transitioned to an outsourced vendor.
According to a company spokesperson, “"This was a difficult decision and we understand the impact this announcement has on our employees. As such, we provided assistance in finding a position either within United or elsewhere. As one of the city's largest employers, we remain committed to the city and people of Houston and surrounding markets." There will be approximately 1,200 employees remaining at the Houston location.
Change is coming. There will always be a tomorrow, no matter how much you may try to ignore it. There are no guarantees in life, or promises for a bright future. Just because something bad hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't. It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere ... are you now wondering, Am I Next?
