NOTE: Please be advised the email for members to submit a withdrawal request is as follows: SalariedWorkforceUtilization@exchange.boeing.com
We have received calls from members that applied for the VLO, were accepted, but have changed their mind and want to continue working without being laid-off.
If you were notified on or before May 14th, you have 5 workdays from May 14th through 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 21st to change your mind.
NOTE: This is a very personal choice. We are not recommending that you accept the offer of VLO or withdraw your acceptance into VLO. We are just providing information so you can make an informed decision.
To initiate your withdrawal request:
Use the template below and send an email to GRP Salaried Workforce Utilization using the following email address: SalariedWorkforceUtilization@exchange.boeing.com with the information below.
Email Subject Line: “VLO Withdrawal - Steering Team’s Review”
Email Body Content:
Work Location - City:
I am requesting to withdraw from the 2020 Voluntary Layoff Program. I am aware that by withdrawing I will not be able to re-register for this offering. Reason for withdrawal: ___________________
We are also receiving questions in regards to the release and waiver. The waiver is a document the Company is asking you to sign that waives your right to sue them for anything that happened prior to the date you sign it.
Those selected to participate in the VLO program received a link to their Release and Waiver Agreement through Worklife via the red bell notification. Members can click on the hyperlink to go to the website to sign their agreement.
If you intend to sue the Company, you should not sign this waiver and release document. If you don’t intend to sue the company and want to be accepted into the VLO and receive severance pay, you should sign it.
Even if you sign the waiver and release, there are certain rights that the law does not allow you to waive, including your right to file for Workers Compensation or Unemployment Benefits. This does not guarantee you will receive those benefits, but the waiver does not prevent you from applying for UI or Workers Comp. In addition, your pension and retirement benefits are not affected by the waiver.
Members will have a specific time frame to consult legal counsel, should they desire.
However, you must be aware, that if you don’t sign the waiver and release agreement and if you don’t withdraw from the VLO before May 21st at 11:59 p.m., you will still be laid-off but will not be eligible to receive the severance package of one week of pay for each year of service and the 6 months of layoff medical benefits.
If you have any questions, please call the union at 1-800-763-1301.
