      AMFA-SWA ETOPS Negotiation Update

      Date: November 2, 2017 To: SWA AMTs From: AMFA-SWA Negotiating Committee: Earl Clark, Will Abbott, Bob Cramer, Craig Hamlett, Shane Flachman, Mike Young Subject: ETOPS Southwest Airlines (SWA) has, once again, demonstrated its lack of respect for the aircraft maintenance technician (AMT) group and our contract. The days of Herb’s SWA are long gone, and the current management would prefer to breach your contract first and arbitrate, as opposed to engaging in a productive collective bargaining relationship. It is, quite simply, disgusting.

      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.

      August 1, 2016 – On the heels of the Southwest Airlines historic system meltdown, the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) has joined with the Southwest Airlines Pilots’ Association (SWAPA) in conducting a vote of “No Confidence” in SWA Executives, particularly its Chief Executive Officer Gary Kelly and Chief Operating Officer Mike Van de Ven.

      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.
