I am a controller at Zhu and have been here for just over 6 years. I am in the Austin area. Previously I was at MLU level 6 up down facility. I would be glad to answer any specific Zhu questions you may have. It is probably better to email me to ensure I see your questions sooner, but I will try to get on here every so often to respond to pm.

As for Zhu hiring most of our hires are new hires. We have gotten a few swaps lately and will be getting some transfers this year also. Transferring from another type of facility is helpful in some aspects and others it is not. Just be receptive to trainers inputs and ask for any help you may think you need.

Do you have any idea when the arbitration decision will be made on ZHU being a 12?

The Arbitration for level 12 is in early December. There is no telling how long before the arbitrator rules.

I would say we do but just like everyone else we also have other things going on which may delay our time to answer the line. This is not the first I have been asked about this. I have looked in to it and once I compared answer times it seems our average time for answering the line is about the same as all the other facilities adjacent to us. It just seems a lot longer when you are the one waiting for someone else to answer the line.

Hey guys,
I'm a CPC at ZAB ARTCC and looking to transfer to ZHU. Do any of you already working there have an idea if ZHU is accepting transfers? I'm a union member, and I'll probably go try and talk to someone here on my end, but I'm trying to get a feel for the needs of the facility first. Thanks.

yes we are in need of controllers. We have, in the recent past and I'm sure more in the future, picked up multiple ERR. We have several people from ZAB here.

Thanks Cwalden,
Could you possibly pm me with a name, or contact information for whomever is responsible for ERR's at ZHU? Thanks. I know two people from my area specifically have transferred in the last two years or so.

Please do not use this thread for swap requests and TOL information. You can refer to the sticky in this thread.
