NOTE: Out of an abundance of caution, although United has stated that they will not contest your claim for unemployment, your AFA leadership must make it clear that the Union has no jurisdiction over unemployment claims and by providing this necessary information for your claim, we are making no representation or providing any guarantee of your eligibility for unemployment.
