Voluntary Separation Program (VSP2) final extension: Apply by July 15
July 7, 2020
United’s Voluntary Separation Program (VSP2) provides an array of benefits for employees who may want to consider a voluntary exit from the company before the announcement of any potential furloughs or reductions in force. While United management has made it clear that this will be the company’s most valuable offer for those who might be considering leaving United in the near future, the final extension to the deadline for application has been extended until July 15, 2020 with the last day worked being July 29, 2020.
The VSP program is now open for employees in the following groups in the U.S., Guam and Puerto Rico:
- Flight Attendants (including Internationally based Flight Attendants)
- Catering Operations employees
- IAM-represented employees
- IBT-represented employees
- Management and Administrative (M&A) employees
As we have previously told you, this VSP is different from the original VSP offered by United in that eligible frontline employees will receive a custom-tailored email providing an overview of the program with the associated links to the program details, FAQs, inquiry form and application form in Help Hub, along with other resources.
The application window for United’s Voluntary Separation Program for frontline employees has been extended until July 15, 2020 and closes on at 23:59:59 US Central Time that day.
It cannot be stressed enough that the company’s VSP2 offer is highly personalized based on individual employee factors such as work group, retirement eligibility, years of service and more. To ensure your full understanding of the VSP offer, refer to Help Hub for the details and FAQs that are relevant to you. Help Hub should be your go-to resource for any questions about the VSP. Additionally, a copy of your personalized offer can also be obtained from the Fidelity™ website at www.401k.com.
