Carrier Hopes To Go From Worst To First In On-Time Numbers
United Airlines announced Monday a new performance-based
incentive program available to the majority of represented
employees, which could net each eligible worker $1,200 annually if
targets are met.
"We are all focused on operating a good airline that is safe,
clean and reliable; and our employees work everyday to achieve an
on-time operation for our customers," says John Tague, executive
vice president and chief operating officer. "We are pleased to
offer a program that will provide further incentive for our
employees and to recognize their efforts."
United says the program was developed to create a stronger link
between pay and performance against United's most critical goals
providing greater opportunity for all employees to benefit as
United improves its performance for customers.
Under the new program, employees will have the opportunity to
earn monthly cash rewards of up to $100 if United achieves a
first-place ranking among competitors in Department of
Transportation on-time arrival rankings, and a $65 payment if the
company achieves a second-place ranking or meets its own stated
Those employees have some work to do, however... as United has
traditionally staked out a place among the worst-performing
airlines in that regard.
