Well that sucks. Hopefully enough "new hires" will do the right thing. We shall see after 5-5. Good luck to you all, and thanks for the update...

Well swamt, it looks like our new hires did the right thing and voted NO. :)...

Our members have spoken and the contract was rejected with an overwhelming majority vote. We would like to thank everyone who voted and your Negotiating Committee for their hard work during this process
Your leadership will be meeting in the coming days to determine the best path forward for the future of every IAM District Lodge 142 member at Southwest Airlines. Again, we appreciate your participation and patience during this democratic process.

Very nice!!! Way to go new hires. Glad to see the unity. I still can't believe the NC still allowed that to come out for a vote, should have been stopped at the table IMO. Just as in some past contracts, let the company call it what they want to call it, bonus pay, but just make sure it is equal to (or greater than, as in our case) than what full retro would be. Which is first raise offered gets paid back to DOR on all hours worked including O/T, HOL, and VAC etc. Great job you guys, now I would expect to see the full retro as the number one item, but , we shall see what the other items are that caused the overwhelming NO vote. :) Pat a new hire on the back and tell them thank you, some were probably a little scared to vote it down.
