AMFA - SWA Technician Negotiations Update #23
08/19/14 - AMFA
August 19, 2014 -- We began the scheduled two-day Aircraft Maintenance Technician (AMT) negotiations on Wednesday, August 13, 2014. The Company started with presenting a proposal for Article 9: Seniority. This Article was tabled during a previous session by our Committee due to the Company’s unwillingness to accept our proposal to shorten the time an individual could temp upgrade to a supervisor. In the Company’s proposal there were three changes: the first two were in paragraph 4 c & d which would limit a Technician from bumping into Maintenance Control or Technical Training in case of furlough, and the last was in paragraph 12 which was a selection process similar to the field service selection process.
