Re: ZAU - Chicago Center

This may be a stupid question but do the hr reps call you as soon as they find out your class date?

Re: ZAU - Chicago Center

Was just told today that I'm now 9th in line. A month and a half ago I was told I was 1st or 2nd for The 2nd half of the FY, So take that for what you will...
Being 9th probably includes the people who were given Jan-March class dates. Atleast I'm hoping that's the case...

I really really hope that is correct. I'm trying hard not to think about it too much.

Re: ZAU - Chicago Center

If you don't have an FOL yet, I wouldn't expect one anytime in the near future.

We were told all hiring is on a pause, unless the person already has an FOL. This would apply to new hires, as well as transfers who were supposed to come to the center. The time frame for this pause is indefinite.

Re: ZAU - Chicago Center

Watch the news, it applies to you. The Congress across the board cuts are coming. Go to NATCA's website and read about the sequestration. Then write your congressman.

Re: ZAU - Chicago Center

yep he's right, just got word from a credible source at ZAU via email that "enroute is frozen" regardless of the sequester. If the sequester does happen it will make our journey to OKC even longer. Not the news I wanted but atleast I know.

Re: ZAU - Chicago Center

hey guys I emailed KB regarding FOL's for March class dates and this is what I got back word for word via her email reply;

"As of right now, we get daily updates on sending FOL's and TOL's out. At this time, we are not allowed to send out FOL's for any March classes due to the unknown outcome of the sequestration. Hopefully, we get the "go-ahead" sooner than later."

doesnt sound promising but my fingers are crossed

Ouch... but not unexpected... hopefully we make 1 hurdle and avoid sequestration on March 1st. I don't think were getting a single piece of info before then.

Re: ZAU - Chicago Center

Hey Everyone! this probably won't excite any of you, but I just got my TOL switched from ZBW to ZAU. I know things are stalled out from the Sequester so I won't even ask about class dates.
