      Labor Day Message

      September 6, 2021         As we celebrate this Labor Day, sometimes referred, as the “unofficial” end of the Summer Season, where kids are back in school, parents sending their college aged children “away” for the first time, and even having a final last BBQ with family and friends, let us not forget, why we celebrate Labor Day.

      Joint letter from NEC&L4 to members on AMFA PAC

      August 19, 2021 Dear AMFA Local 4 Member: Workforce issues, safety and security, our outsourcing crisis, and ever-increasing new technology make one thing certain: the aircraft mechanic and related craft must be at the table when the U.S. Congress makes decisions that affect us. We can’t assume or expect anyone else will be our advocate on Capitol Hill.

      Dear Members: In the recent months, we have had numerous conversations system-wide revealing concerns regarding the rapid increase of commercial air traffic. These concerns include maintenance of service standards, limited on-the-job and equipment/tooling training, maintenance compliance, and pressure to take shortcuts while performing maintenance tasks. It is important to note that becoming a certified mechanic takes two years of school to pass a sophisticated FAA certification process and can take an additional five years to become proficient at the craft. This means that effectively replacing retired mechanics will take much longer than many carriers anticipate.

      It has been just over three (3) weeks since the launch of the Maintenix (MXi) program within Southwest Airlines (SWA) recordkeeping, and the observations and reports received from AMFA members have been discouraging, revealing numerous issues and shortcomings within the program. Being discouraged and upset with the challenges and obstacles that arise is understandable, but we must remember compliance is the top priority when it comes to signing-off the work that has been performed. DO NOT utilize any short-cuts or work-arounds to get the job done. The burden of this system’s fallacies rests with the Company, not the AMFA members that have been forced to endure the frustration that has been created. While the Company continues to attempt to correct the issues that have been identified, remain vigilant in uncovering anything that may compromise the integrity of compliance. The Company has issued numerous Know Before Fix notices via Read and Signs to ensure that those MXi program shortcomings are addressed, thereby increasing the information load to the end users.
