Letter from National Director Regarding SWA Shareholder Meeting
05/23/17 - AMFA
May 23 -- During negotiations with Southwest Airlines (SWA) our members have not reaped any of the rewards of year-over-year record profits. Since the amendable date of our contract, August 16, 2012, the sacrifices for AMTs have far outweighed the Company’s financial record profit success. Since 2012, shareholders and SWA executives have been profiting off their returns from stock repurchases and dividends, while our members have not benefited or received improvements in wages, benefits, or compensation that reflects the Company’s strong financial stance.

Given that bridge workers constitute a small percentage of the railroad worker population, this is a significant number. Unsecured walkways/gratings were the primary cause in one-half of the fatal accidents and serious injuries.
