I sure hope this is not a sign of how the co is going to approach nego's.
You know, some of our top leaders within maint have stated numerous times that they want to "repair" the relationship between the co and union after that ridiculous long 6 plus years of nego our contract. I know this is a different work group, and quite possibly different reasons. but actions speak volumes, and these co actions are leading to the exact same way they were nego in our contract where at approx 3 years in they have to ask for mediation. C'mon Man, not this same ole crap again SWA, get to the table and get the deal done with our F/A's and show the other groups (who are watching closely) that you mean what you say about getting back to the way it USE TO BE. You know, the good ole days...

If AMFA can take almost 7 years to negotiate a contract how can you possibly hope to sell them to other people? SWA never took AMFA seriously and was able to basically ignore them forever because they have no power to pressure the Airlines.

Terrible Union. Just absolutely terrible.

They took them seriously. They knew that in the end they could take more work from them if they dragged them out, dragged them in to court, have them sign a non-disclosure settlement they could buy them off for a few dollars on the second go around.

Sad to see, buy apparently true. Sure hope there is a 180 degree turn around when Tech Ops goes into our next nego's. Not banking on anything as actions will speak louder than words for sure.

There won’t be because you are represented by Lawyers who won’t get paid if they are not doing something to bill you for. So you will likely linger another 7 years next time again. Sad but I really believe that’s your reality.
