    AMFA - SWA Technician Negotiations Update #49
    12/09/16 - AMFA
    December 9, 2016 -- As reported on Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) Negotiations Update #48, during our session last week the Company proposed a comprehensive Maintenance Control Appendix of Differences that would reside separately in the back of the contract. We worked prior to this session to determine if we would give the Company the Appendix or if we wanted to stay with our concept of working the Maintenance Control rules into the current contract language. In the interest of productive bargaining, we decided to make a sizeable move by agreeing to the Company’s concept of a Maintenance Control Appendix, but we would need to work with the Maintenance Controller Subject Matter Experts (SME) to ensure the language was acceptable for their group.

    Press Release: AMFA Opposes DOT Approval of NAI Foreign Air Carrier Permit
    12/07/16 - AMFA
    December 7, 2016 – The Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) is opposed to the recent decision by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) to approve a foreign air carrier permit to Norwegian Air International (NAI). AMFA National Director, Bret Oestreich, stated, “Since 2014, AMFA has consistently opposed NAI’s application to operate routes between the U.S. and Europe. The U.S. Department of Transportation decision to approve this permit is another blow to the U.S. aviation workforce. NAI’s ‘flag of convenience’ is an outright attempt to circumvent the US-EU Open Skies Agreement which was established to protect the men and women working in the U.S. aviation industry.”

    Letter from the NEC to ASA Members
    12/07/16 - AMFA
    December 7, 2016 -- As you know, AMFA is currently engaged in collective bargaining with Alaska Airlines pursuant to the Railway Labor Act. As long as that lasts, the parties are required to refrain from “self help” until released by the National Mediation Board (“NMB”) from mediation and a thirty-day cooling off period has expired. This means that during the negotiating process Alaska is prohibited from initiating a lockout or unilaterally changing the terms of our collective bargaining agreement. It also means that AMFA-represented employees are prohibited from engaging in concerted job actions designed to create bargaining leverage. Federal courts have defined “self help” to include, among other things, group overtime boycotts.
