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

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.
