The Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) is proud to announce that after much

consideration and negotiations, the Mechanics and Related members at both Southwest (SWA)

and AirTran Airlines (TRS) have ratified a combined Seniority List Integration Agreement.

In this seniority agreement, a single list of both airlines’ represented Mechanics and Related

employees has been created allowing them the freedom to exercise their seniority with no further


In conjunction with the seniority agreement, SWA Mechanics and Related personnel have

ratified a Transition Agreement with Southwest Airlines designed to:

1. Implement a specific timeline for creating an additional 4th line of heavy maintenance at

the Dallas maintenance base

2. Establish an additional AMFA Mechanics and Related headcount in order to fulfill the

needs created by the current AMFA - SWA Combined Bargaining Agreement

3. Protect members at Baltimore Washington International (BWI) and Orlando (MCO) from

involuntary displacement

4. Offer TRS members enhanced benefits and job security under the AMFA negotiated

Combined Bargaining Agreement

Many thanks to the AMFA - SWA Committee, the TRS Mechanics Committee, and the SWA

management team for their continued dedication and determination toward the success of all

members of both airlines.

The Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association “AMFA” was established in 1962 as a craft

focused union that represents Mechanics and Related airline employees. AMFA has proven to be

the only democratic organization for technical aviation professionals. Through local autonomy

the members control all aspects of their union. AMFA represents the Mechanic and Related

employees at Southwest Airlines and Alaska Airlines.
