      With deep regret, the system-wide representatives of Southwest’s maintenance employees completed a “Vote of No Confidence” and hereby request that you seek the immediate resignation of Southwest Airlines Vice President of Maintenance Operations Landon Nitschke. Under Mr. Nitschke’s stewardship, the safety culture of the airline’s maintenance program has been degraded to an unprecedented degree.

      Dear Members: We started off 2018 right away with AMFA and Alaska Airlines meeting in Dallas, Texas on January 2-3 to discuss a Virgin America (VX) – Alaska Airlines (ASA) Transition Agreement. Our Committee expressed the need to make every effort outside of arbitration to resolve three contractual items. For more information, please read AMFA-ASA Virgin America Transition Agreement Discussions Update #1. Our second meeting regarding the VX – ASA Transition Agreement was held on January 24-25 in Seattle, WA. Both committees discussed the VX sick time accrual, compared the 401(k) plans, and compared the differences in the steps in our ASA CBA to steps and years of service at VX. We also asked for enhancements or improvements to our CBA. For more information, please read AMFA-ASA Virgin America Transition Agreement Discussions Update #2. Our next session is scheduled for March 20-22, 2018. I have full confidence that your Committee will establish protection provisions for all through the Transition Agreement.

      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.
