Southwest Pilots to Picket Company Annual Meeting
The move is intended to show the pilots’ displeasure in not yet having a new contract after four years of negotiations with the company, the Southwest Airlines Pilots’ Association in a statement.
“Four years, particularly during a time of record profits, is far too long for a company known for its “LUV” to not provide a worthy contract offer to its operational front-line leaders – the pilots,” the union said.
The shareholders meeting will place at the Congress Plaza Hotel in Chicago.
Pilots also plan to picket at Midway Airport after the meeting.
