    Blog: The Truth About What’s Really Behind The “Operational Emergency” Declared By Southwest Airlines
    02/20/19 - AMFA
    February 20, 2019 -- Southwest’s statement on February 19 scapegoating its own Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) for their so-called “Operational Emergency” is a confluence of mistruths — and we countered it immediately. But we wanted to address additional questions — namely, what is really behind the “unprecedented number of out-of-service aircraft,” as described by COO Mike Van de Ven. It order to really understand what’s going on, we need to look at the timeline of events...

    On Feb. 13, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced S. 478, the “Expand Social Security Act,” legislation that would expand benefits and add almost 50 years of solvency to the program. Social Security, in its current form, is paying out more money to recipients than it takes in, and will no longer be able to pay out full benefits by 2034.  A companion bill, H.R.

    Response to Statement from Southwest Airlines Chief Operating Officer, Mike Van de Ven
    02/19/19 - AMFA
    February 19, 2019 -- Southwest Airline’s scapegoating of its expert Aircraft Maintenance Technicians does not bode well for the airline’s safe operations. Safety is, and always will be, our number one priority. For Southwest's leadership to connect the airline’s self-declared “operational emergency” to collective bargaining negotiations is simply an attempt to divert attention away from the airline’s safety issues. The FAA has condemned the carrier’s “capitulation of airworthiness” and Southwest has confessed that it has flown passengers in unairworthy aircraft. These glaring issues and the widespread pressuring of aircraft maintenance technicians by the airline were exposed in the recent CBS News report.
