September 17, 2014
The AMFA – Southwest Airlines Airline Representatives have requested a system-wide referendum of the Inspectors and Alternate Inspectors regarding two separate distribution methods for the Inspection Backfill Award:
Option 1: Distribution of the total settlement amount divided equally amongst all eligible Inspectors and Alternates.
Option 2: Distribution of the total settlement amount based upon the number of days each eligible candidate occupied an affected position during the remedy calculation period, which for purposes of computation was July 12, 2012 until April 1, 2014.
AMFA National is facilitating this referendum on behalf of the affected Locals.
This secret ballot referendum is being conducted by mail, and all active members in good standing employed by Southwest Airlines under the Inspector or Alternate Inspector classifications are eligible to vote in this referendum. Note: Any member whose membership dues, fees, and/or assessment obligations have not been paid in full is a member in bad standing, and therefore, their vote will be cancelled in this referendum. Members are strongly urged to resolve any arrearage prior to this referendum being tallied.
Ballots will be mailed to eligible voters at the address on record with AMFA National by September 18, 2014. Any eligible member who has not received a ballot package by September 25, 2014, or any member who spoils a ballot, may request a new ballot by contacting the Elections Administrator at 720-744-6629 no later than September 30, 2014. If you request another ballot, only the replacement ballot will be counted.
Mail your ballot in the pre-addressed stamped envelope in sufficient time for it to be received by the post office box by 10:00 AM ET on October 9, 2014, the day of the ballot tally. The results will be announced following the ballot tally.
Anyone having questions about the voting process should contact the Elections Administrator at 720-744-6629.
