MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin – Midwest Airlines today announced it plans to reduce the workforce of Midwest Airlines and its Skyway subsidiary by about 1,200 employees, or 40 percent of current staffing levels. The majority of the jobs affected are related to the airline’s previously announced decision to remove its 12-plane MD-80 fleet from service this fall, as well as other schedule adjustments to be announced.

“In order to successfully restructure, there is no way to avoid deep and painful reductions to our current workforce,” said Timothy E. Hoeksema, chairman and chief executive officer. “We will go about this task with compassion and dignity. Midwest has always been a place where employees take care of one another – in times that are good and in times that are hard. Perhaps more than any other time in our history, we must hold true to this value.”

The company said it would begin notifying affected employees today. The reductions will take the form of furloughs or position eliminations, depending on job function. The reductions are spread throughout the airline’s flight operations, inflight, operations, maintenance and general administrative functions. The effective date of the reductions will vary by job function, but most will take place no later than mid-September.

In addition, the company said it is continuing talks this week with the Airline Pilots Association and the Association of Flight Attendants, the labor organizations that represent its pilots and flight attendants, to reach agreements on concessions necessary to reduce the airline’s cost structure.

Midwest Airlines features jet service throughout the United States, including Milwaukee’s most daily nonstop flights and best schedule to major destinations. Catering to business travelers and discerning leisure travelers, the airline earned its reputation as “The best care in the air” by providing passengers with impeccable service and onboard amenities at competitive fares.
