Dear AMFA Brothers and Sisters:

The Negotiating Committee is providing this update to the AMFA Membership at Southwest Airlines. This report is the only official authorized source of negotiating communications by the Committee.

This most recent negotiation session held in Dallas, TX over the past three very long days, March 12-14, 2019, concluded at 3:15am this morning without a final resolution. While we are disappointed, both sides worked hard and significant progress was made during this session. We are encouraged that our efforts have put an agreement within reach, and we are continuing to work on a deal that the members can vote on. We also are in the process of scheduling our next session, should it be needed, and are hopeful we can reach a conclusion to this long negotiation process.


Your Negotiating Committee

7853 E. Arapahoe Court, Suite 1100
Centennial, CO 80112
