    Yes, CLE has a new facility that CAK and MFD will be consolidated into.

    I know CLE is overstaffed now. Are people from MFD and CAK going to go there? I'd love to get back home to the NE Ohio area but its looking harder and harder everyday.

    We can always use people at ZOB!

    We've actually had 2 or 3 jump ship from CAK recently...

    I don't think we're supposed to get any grads until at least October, but things always change.

    We haven't gotten any since October 2015, and even then, we weren't really supposed to get them, and nobody knows why we got them. They pretty much showed up with very little notice to our training department. It's a crap shoot, but you'll never know unless you try!

    CAK is on my list and is one of my higher choices, any updates on the consolidation or any advice in general?

    I do not have specifics but I will note that in the latest NATCA "Week in Review" newsletter, there was a message from ATO COO Teri Bristol discussing the successful cutover of K90 into A90. Here is what was noted about the next round or rounds of consolidation:

    "We have additional consolidations in the works. Next on tap is the realignment of Erie (ERI) TRACON operations to the Buffalo (BUF) Tower and TRACON, and later, we expect to have some changes in Ohio and Michigan. These moves are often going to be from very low volume facilities to those with more traffic and more opportunities for growth for employees. Our agreements with labor were very helpful in making this a smooth transition. Air traffic controllers working in the radar rooms are given the option to stay and work at the local tower when there is one, or they can move to the other facility."

    I'm ERRing to CLE and asked about consolidation when I visited about a month ago. I was told CAK and MFD TRACONs will be merged into CLE in the summer of 2019. CPCs (but not developmentals) are given the option to move with the TRACON, but apparently their isn't much interest among many CAK CPCs in moving. Sounds like CAK will likely become a level 5 tower and MFD a level 4 after they lose their TRACONs. I think there's still a fair amount of controllers that were at CAK when it was an 8, so level 8 pay to work level 5 traffic might be a reason for the lack of interest in moving. Even the younger controllers would save pay at a 7. It might also be a good chance for CAK controllers to get a free ticket to about any facility they want to go to, so some might be holding out for that. Just speculation on my part though.

    I have been talking with a direct hire who put TRI #1 on his list and go Akron. If there is anyone looking that got TRI in their bid and is looking to go to Akron instead please let me know ASAP.
