ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - United Airlines has given notice that it will lay off 40 people at Greater Rochester International Airport in October and 42 more at the Albany airport.
    
The Chicago-based carrier outlined the plans in a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification filed with the state labor department.
    
The notice indicates United is considering switching to an outside vendor for customer service and ramp operations.
