Southwest Airlines Ramp Employees Protest Temporary Worker Plan

Dallas Business Journal (03/29/13) Lance Murray

Ground employees for Southwest Airlines Co. picketed at Dallas Love Field on March 28, unhappy with the company’s plan to use temporary workers on the ramp. Southwest Airlines wants to be able to outsource 20% of it ground work to temporary workers, and that plan is opposed by members of the Transport Workers Union Local 555. The union says it has more than 9,400 members in Local 555, and that Southwest’s plan could allow for 2,000 temporary workers. The union has been in contract talks with the airline for 19 months.
