Most people who have been furloughed were initially furloughed until May 31st. nothing heard yet about going back or extension of furlough so who knows!

NATS has already said it will need a smaller workforce in the future. Traffic levels are not likely to return to pre-covid levels for a number of years, if ever.

Unfortunately, that means there is not going to be any new ATCO courses for a long time. Years, most likely.

Job cuts

I am an assistant at Swanwick and growing more concerned by the day. I feel the cuts will be heavy and was wondering if they could legally offer assistant jobs to ATCOís through redeployment on the basis of more flexibility

Watch them give it to the trainees currently waiting for OJT and or D2 sims - can't imagine them starting their actual training any time soon.

I think you're probably right, maybe one small wave now to keep us going, and a large one when this package expires.

I appreciate that this is a difficult time for everyone in the industry and there is a lot of worry and anxiety about jobs, but it seems like there is a lot of speculation and conjecture taking place. Some of it may well turn out to be correct, but I think it would be more useful if comments were based on solid information as opposed to feeling, as it just serves to spread anxiety in what is already a difficult time.

Hi, Justbeingnosey, Iím just being nosey here, too, but looking at your posting history it seems your son was a trainee assistant at Swanwick 10 years ago.

Did he sort you out with a career change in your fifties? Or are you just LARPing?

About 60% of the company are furloughed at the moment. So this is an unnecessary fallacy.
