On March 20, 2012, the AMFA Proposal was reviewed and found acceptable by Southwest
Airlines. We will be meeting with the IBT, AirTran Mechanics Seniority Committee, and
Southwest Airlines in Dallas on April 5th at 9AM.
The following is summary of our proposal:
AirTran and Southwest Mechanics shall be integrated into a single seniority list on the
basis of their date-of-entry into the classification provided that all Southwest Mechanics
employed by Southwest Airlines on May 2, 2011, shall be placed on the integrated list
based on the crediting of an additional four years of classification seniority to their existing
classification seniority date.
Southwest Airlines shall not involuntarily displace Mechanics from the BWI and MCO
stations until the date of ratification of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA)
following the next CBA except by using Articles 5 and 10 as required in the Southwest
Mechanics’ CBA with a provision for a reduction of flights. Any reductions at these
stations shall remain subject to Letter of Agreement #1, paragraph 4 of the Southwest
Upon the effective date of the Agreement, the March 29, 2011, Letter of Agreement
between AMFA and Southwest Airlines shall be null and void.
The Seniority and Transition agreements shall live or die together through a vote by the
Unions’ respective members. Any disputes arising under this Agreement shall be subject to
the dispute resolution procedures provide for under Articles 21 and 22 of the Southwest
AMFA is dedicated to our members and open communication.
