Sisters and Brothers:

I have recently received a number of calls regarding the Preferential Hiring Agreement and the Vacation Bid process.  In order to eliminate the rumors and misinformation I would like to address these issues here.

    • DFW was not available as a preferential Hiring Station as the LAA recall
