      Dear Members: AMFA and Alaska Airlines met in Anchorage, AK on March 20-21 to discuss a Virgin America – Alaska Airlines Transition Agreement. The Company advised us during our first two negotiation sessions that there would be zero enhancements to existing collective bargaining agreements (CBA) as part of any work group’s transition agreement; however, the Flight Attendants gained multiple enhancements in their recent agreement. We, therefore, delivered a reasonable Transition Agreement proposal, which mirrored the enhancements received by the Flight Attendants. Surprisingly, our negotiation session was cut short as Alaska refused to contribute a counterproposal and provide you similar enhancements like those provided to the Flight Attendants. This speaks volumes as to how the Company views our group.

      Awareness has been raised regarding damage to cargo panels as there are several maintenance documents that direct Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) to inspect the cargo compartment panels for damage. The primary concern when inspecting these panels is the aspect of fire containment. The Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) gives damage limitations and should be consulted when investigating any damage that has been noted. At Southwest there are maximum damage limits within the B737NG AMM for damage that may be repaired. Attention to tape condition is also important in sealing the cargo compartments to minimize the oxygen amount.

      Dear AMFA–SWA Members: As you know, AMFA is currently engaged in collective bargaining with Southwest Airlines pursuant to the Railway Labor Act (RLA). The RLA mandates that the parties are required to refrain from “self help” until released by the National Mediation Board (“NMB”) from mediation and a thirty-day cooling off period has expired. This means that during the negotiating process Southwest is prohibited from initiating a lockout or unilaterally changing the terms of our collective bargaining agreement. Southwest is also prohibited from implementing a divide and conquer strategy based on direct negotiations with our members. Based on our determination that Southwest has violated its legal obligation in this regard, we have commenced litigation against the carrier in federal court.
