Let’s backtrack a bit. Last Friday, the carrier announced it was striking employee bonuses from the 2018 budget, replacing them with an arbitrary lottery giveaway each quarter.
Today, Brian Sumers tweeted a leaked internal memo from United CEO Oscar Munoz with the subject line: “A message from Oscar and Scott: Quarterly Operations Incentive Program.”
Based on this message, United employees will still receive their standard bonuses for Q1, based on the same criteria as used in the past. The new bonus plan has yet to be decided, but will be determined based on “a series of listening sessions” between employees and management.
United also recently announced a “compassion training” workshop that will be mandatory for all consumer-facing employees.
