AMFA - SWA Seniority List Integration Update

March 30, 2012

This update is brought to you by AMFA National, and is the only official authorized source of

negotiating communications.

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

Mechanics’ CBA.

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

Mechanics’ CBA.

AMFA is dedicated to our members and open communication.

Thank you for your support,

Floyd Looney
