Southwest-Air Tran mechanics vote against tentative agreement on merging seniority rankings

28-Feb-2012 1:07 PM

Southwest Airlines is reportedly unable to move ahead with its integration with AirTran Airways because the airlines' mechanics voted against a tentative agreement on merging seniority rankings (Phoenix Business Journal, 27-Feb-2012). Union officials stated they are committed to a quick resolution between the two sides. The main issues are long-term rules about seniority and the expansion timeline for the merged airlines' maintenance operation.
