Update July 31, 2020 –Today, nearly 3500 members had their last day on the payroll. As our membership continues to be negatively impacted by the global pandemic, we will continue to offer resources to those experiencing layoff.
Today, we received the list of 60-day WARN notices issued to 602 of our members by Boeing. 236 of them were reWARNs (meaning the member was already holding a WARN notice, effectively extending their layoff date to October 2nd).Click here to view the new list.
On the jobs that weren’t offered voluntary layoffs, but now are experiencing involuntary layoffs, our Union requested Boeing initiate voluntary layoffs in those classifications. The Company has refused and unfortunately, this is not a contractual requirement.
We understand the stress that these notices bring for all and encourage any members holding a WARN notice to download our Facing Layoff Booklet that contains information and links on: how to file your recall rights, training options, free online college info, how to active 6 months contractual medical benefits after layoff, applying for UI, WorkSource info, Union dues info, job search and more.
We also encourage anyone holding a WARN notice to attend an IAM Rapid Response Live Webinar and register early as the sessions fill up quickly as layoff dates get closer. This webinar includes representatives from WorkSource and Unemployment insurance to answer your questions. Members can participate in this live webinar during work hours, as Boeing provides those holding a WARN notice 5 hours to learn about available resources and participate in these activities.
