      AMFA National Director Response to Southwest Requests to Identify Cost Savings

      Dear Mr. Wafer Earlier today, April 14, 2020, AMFA Representatives consisting of Airline Representatives for the four AMFA Locals representing members at Southwest -- Local 4, Dan Burgess; Local 11, Craig Hamlet; Local 18, Wayne Lampley; and Local 32, Ken Patrick; as well as AMFA counsel, Lucas Middlebrook, Esq. -- met via web conference with you and other management representatives. That meeting resulted from your request on April 1, which came a few days after I attended a meeting at Russell McCrady’s invitation on March 26 concerning the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the carrier. AMFA’s participation in both meetings was to listen and confer, but otherwise without any precondition or waiver of rights.

      Dear Members: In the month of May we celebrated Memorial Day to honor all those who gave their lives in active military service. Never forget their sacrifices, tell their stories, celebrate their legacies, and honor the fallen. God bless our loved ones. We also had the opportunity to celebrate National AMT Day on May 24, honoring the hard work of those who keep our aircraft flying safe, for crews and flying public. The first aircraft mechanic and the original unsung hero of aviation was Charles E. Taylor whose birthday was on May 24. He worked for the Wright brothers in their bicycle shop in Dayton, OH. When the brothers could not find a company to build them an engine for their glider, Charles made one from scratch in about six weeks. Today, in this time of uncertainty and crisis, the work our Mechanics and Related perform each and every day is even more valuable.
