  • AMFA–Southwest Airlines AMT Contract Negotiations Update #72
    Updated On: Feb 04, 2019

    Update #72

    February 3, 2019

    Dear AMFA Brothers and Sisters:

    After six and a half years of negotiations and a tentative agreement rejected by the membership, Southwest Airlines continues to delay and obstruct as opposed to negotiate in good faith.

    As you will recall from Update #71, your Negotiating Committee delivered a comprehensive information request to the Company at the conclusion of our last session, which was designed to elicit all relevant information in the Company’s possession regarding its newly expressed desire to, once again, send maintenance to international vendors.

    On Friday, February 1, your Negotiating Committee received the Company’s response to our information request, which included zero documents and not a single point of data, thus preventing our economist the ability to cost and evaluate the Company’s proposal to return offshore with our maintenance work. Would Southwest make a million-dollar business decision without analyzing the cost of that decision in advance? We think not. We advised the Company, in no uncertain terms, we could not negotiate over this proposal in the dark – without the data and information needed to properly evaluate the cost of the Company’s proposal and its effect on you, the membership.

    We have included our original information request followed by the Company’s non-response for your review. We are confident once you review, you will draw the same conclusion as your Committee –here we are, no raises for 6.5 years and the games continue. Enough is enough – Southwest must stop the games and start negotiating in good faith.


    Your Negotiating Committee
