    For those sitting on the edge of their seat the TA passed 23-8. Included is a move package for the relocation to CVG. Looking like that will happen rather soon.

    Looks like all positions that Atlas is currently hiring for list Erlanger, KY as the location.

    Because the ops center is being moved to CVG. Now we are stuck with a contract for another FOUR years. But it's ok though, the super senior guys got exactly what they wanted.

    60k is plenty to live on in NKY if your pay didn't change. The salary the SAI guys have is not bad either.

    I wouldn't consider 45k a year "not bad". It's terrible for heavy intl dispatching. The southern guys are getting a big ass raise when we eventually merge.

    That's liveable in that area. Its not a major so your not gonna get past 55k anywhere.

    I guess your definition of plenty to live is totally different than mine.

    It's also not a major airline, or even close. So not sure why anyone should expect to be paid like one.

    New contract signed starting 30 and top off 15yrs 63 an hr. Thats basically the same contract as Hawaiian and Alaskan if I'm correct with half the cost of living in Cincinnati

    Major as in pax major? In the cargo world, Atlas is certainly considered major.

    See above... under the AAWH I believe they are number 4 in global cargo moved...

    I was with Southern when they relocated from Connecticut/Greater NYC area to CVG. For the record - the people that came along from the northeast liked living in the area.

    Northern Kentucky is a bit of a snoozy place unless you live in Newport/Covington. I loved Cincinnati. Great town - a lot of revitalization and new investment. Lots to do and revisit. My wife and I occasionally mention how we miss it there. That may have something to do with the fact we live in ATL now, but nonetheless we found it enjoyable.

    I mean a fleet of 100 aircraft and a multi-billion dollar company isn't exactly a regional. Plus it's cargo where the profit margins are larger than passenger. The size of the planes, the difficulty of the routes, the job itself is as difficult as anywhere. It's a combination of everything that makes this contract extension possible.
