On Wednesday, as part of our strategic Contract campaign, TWU Local 556 Members and Leaders were in Chicago to speak to Southwest Airlines Shareholders about the People Behind the Profits, our Members. Flight Attendants provided a reach out message and Shareholder appreciation gift bags to Shareholders who were very interested in a new metric for Southwest Airlines, a Return on Employee Contributions (ROEC); a new Contract.
TWU Local 556 wants to thank all who shared their personal stories with us for the “People Behind the Profits” campaign. We will be using these amazing submissions in the upcoming months to remind everyone that we are the heart of the machine and key contributors to the unprecedented profits of Southwest Airlines.
FAA inspectors are out in full force in advance of the dual carry period. Going forward you should expect greater scrutiny from FAA inspectors onboard our aircraft. Currently the inspectors will focus on your Flight Attendant Binder and will check for 100% compliance, as they have in the past. When the dual carry period begins you will be required to keep both your EFB and Flight Attendant Binder in full compliance.
