The AMFA – Southwest Airlines Negotiating Committee has requested a system-wide referendum of the Appearance Technician classification regarding a Contract Extension Letter of Agreement (LOA). The complete text of the LOA was emailed to each member’s company email address on October 25, 2016. If you have not received the LOA email, please contact the Administration Director at 720-744-6629.
This secret ballot referendum is being conducted by mail, and all active members in good standing employed by Southwest Airlines under the Appearance Technician Collective Bargaining Agreement are eligible to vote in this referendum. Note: Any member whose membership dues, fees, and/or assessment obligations have not been paid in full is a member in bad standing, and therefore, their vote will be cancelled in this referendum. Members are strongly urged to resolve any arrearage prior to this referendum being tallied.
Ballots will be mailed to eligible voters at the address on record with AMFA National by October 25, 2016. Any eligible member who has not received a ballot package by November 4, 2016, or any member who spoils a ballot, may request a new ballot by contacting the Administration Director at 720-744-6629 no later than November 10, 2016. If you request another ballot, only the replacement ballot will be counted.
Mail your ballot in the pre-addressed stamped envelope in sufficient time for it to be received by the post office box by 10:00 AM ET on November 22, 2016, the day of the ballot tally. The results will be announced following the ballot tally.
Anyone having questions about the voting process should contact the Administration Director at 720-744-6629.
