CHICAGO, Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Customers are seeing a new look on United Airlines runways. Welcoming the new year, United is debuting new uniforms designed by Carhartt Company Gear (CCG) exclusively for the airline’s 28,000 Technical Operations, Ramp Service and Catering Operations employees. CCG worked directly with United employees for nearly three years to create a collection of uniform pieces that deliver hard-working designs that stand up to the unique demands of their jobs. “This is more than a fashion statement for United Airlines,” said Kate Gebo, executive vice president of Human Resources and Labor Relations at United Airlines. “This highly inclusive design process reflects how highly we value the input of our employees and union leadership. Every day all over the globe our employees on the ground are facing the coldest colds and the hottest hots. Through our partnership with Carhartt – the leader in workwear – we’ve confidently created a uniform collection enabling our employees to look good and feel good while continuing to deliver the best service for our customers.”Approximately 1,000 employees from both domestic and international operations participated in focus groups and “wear tests” where their input was used to enhance garment features and functionality. The Carhartt collection includes over 50 pieces, each designed to address our below-wing workforce’s specific needs, like bottoms with custom-design pockets to fit wands and other tools, color-blocking on hi-visibility gear to address dirt and grime and fabrics designed to address the wide range of climate
