    Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association Joins Southwest Airlines Pilots Association in
    Vote of ‘No Confidence’ for Southwest Airlines CEO and COO
    AURORA, Colo. – August 1, 2016 – On the heels of the Southwest Airlines historic system meltdown, the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) has joined with the Southwest Airlines Pilots’ Association (SWAPA) in conducting a vote of “No Confidence” in SWA Executives, particularly its Chief Executive Officer Gary Kelly and Chief Operating Officer Mike Van de Ven.
    “After discussions with the AMFA-SWA Negotiating Committee and our affected local leadership, the AMFA National Executive Council (NEC) joined the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association (SWAPA) in conducting a Vote of No Confidence,” read a memo AMFA issued to its affected membership.
    “The technology failure was the final straw for our members,” said National Director Louie Key. “The current leadership has dragged out our contract negotiations for nearly four years, eroded the company culture that employees hold dear, and continued to put Band-Aids on its operational systems rather than invest in company upgrades.”
    “A ‘profit over people’ structure has overtaken the company,” said Key. “Our members have a vested interest in the continued success of Southwest Airlines, and because of that interest, they stand with the pilots in calling for the replacement of CEO Gary Kelly and COO Mike Van de Ven, as they are undermining the culture and the values of the company. It is time for change.”
