  • Local 4 President Letter to Members
    Updated On: Feb 17, 2017

    17 February 2017

    Dear Members:

    Southwest Airlines filed a lawsuit against AMFA National, AMFA Local 11, and several individual AMFA officers and contract negotiators. The lawsuit alleges that AMFA-represented mechanics initiated an overtime boycott and that AMFA and the other defendants failed to make “every reasonable effort” to prevent the boycott and/or bring it to an end.

    During the pendency of the Section 6 negotiating process, both the carrier and union, and its members, are required to maintain the status quo. The status quo obligation requires the union and its members to refrain from strikes and job actions.

    The Railway Labor Act (RLA) reads that we are not allowed to perform any “self help” which is not limited to but includes overtime boycotts. Please remember to refrain from any organized overtime boycott of Southwest Airlines.

    That being said, we now advise you that any concerted (organized) withholding of overtime undermines the interests of our group as a whole. We direct our members to cease all unlawful job actions.

    Thank You

    Joe Rajca
