Airport authority to cut 16 jobs at Pittsburgh International

More than a dozen jobs are being cut at Pittsburgh International Airport, officials confirmed Thursday.

“While we do not take decisions that impact jobs lightly, the aviation industry and nature of our work at Pittsburgh International Airport has changed over the past several years,” said Allegheny County Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis. “Creating a more cross-functional and agile team allows us to become more efficient, better serve our customers and continue to support the growth of our region.”

The cuts are being made after a review of Allegheny County Airport Authority needs and an evaluation of job roles and responsibilities at the airport.

The 16 positions are managerial, office staff and operations and maintenance workers and the cuts are effective June 26.

The employees who were cut were given three weeks’ notice and a severance package.

The authority employed 485 people, according to its 2019 budget.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
