Layoff Watch ’19: United Airlines Is Axing 100 Accounting Jobs in Houston

Not-so-good news today from the Associated Press:

United Airlines says it will cut about 100 accounting jobs in Houston in July and shift the work to a contractor.

The airline reported the layoffs in a letter this week to the Texas Workforce Commission. It did not identify the contractor that will handle accounting of revenue from passengers.

A United spokeswoman said Friday the airline is providing job-search help.

According to the ABC News affiliate in Houston, United employees were notified of the transition in July 2018 and that the airline has spent the past year providing career-assistance services, such as resume writing and interview skills, to those who will be laid off.
