Sisters and Brothers,
Our members have spoken and the contract was rejected with an overwhelming majority vote to authorize the union to strike. We would like to thank everyone who voted and your Negotiating Committee for their hard work during this process.
Your leadership will be meeting in the coming days to determine the best path forward for the future of every IAM District Lodge 142 member at Southwest Airlines. Again, we appreciate your participation and patience during this democratic process.
John M. Coveny, Jr.
PRESIDENT-DIRECTING GENERAL CHAIR
