Ground Crews To Picket Southwest Airlines

Posted in Airline News, Southwest AirlinesNo comments

Southwest Airlines ground crews say they’ll picket at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix on Friday as they push for a resolution to stalled contract talks.

Members of the Transport Workers Union also plan pickets at airports in Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Seattle. The union represents 7,200 ramp, operations, provisioning and freight agents.

The union says some of its members haven’t had a raise since 2005. Contract negotiations began in January but broke down in October.

Union negotiating committee member Patti Adams says the airline and union will meet with a federal mediator on Monday.

Southwest’s Whitney Eichinger says the airline is working to resolve the remaining contract issues. The picketers are on their off time and no flight delays are expected.
