Contract rights for temporary recall

Laid-off employees who maintain their priority recall status can be brought back by Boeing for temporary, short-term assignments at their prior wage, with adjustments for general-wage increases.

If asked, laid-off employees can accept or refuse the temporary recall assignment without affecting their priority or active layoff status.

Employees need to continue filing for priority recall to remain on the first-consideration recall.  

Benefits impact for temp recall

  • Medical – If you’re within a year of your layoff, medical benefits begin on the first day of the month your assignment begins. If you’ve been laid off longer than a year, medical benefits begin the first day of the following month. 
  • Vacation/sick leave – All unused vacation and sick-leave credits are reactivated. The accrual of future benefits continues in compliance with the current collective bargaining agreement and standard Boeing policies.
  • VIP contribution – Any Voluntary Investment Plan (VIP) contributions may resume beginning on the first of the month following recall.
  • Company service – Company service is earned from the first day back. However, there are no additional layoff benefits after your temporary assignment ends.
