    Providing a Safe and Healthy Workplace are the Core of a Union’s Role, and this Pandemic is No Exception
    10/20/21 - Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen

    As stated previously, your Union stood in solidarity with you throughout this pandemic, and we continue today. Providing a safe and healthy workplace are the core of a union’s role, and this pandemic is no exception. We have had long battles within the rail industry to promote these core safety values, because a paycheck alone is meaningless if you die at work. We have all suffered from this pandemic; in the early going, we were able to stay safer on the job by insisting that the proper PPE was obtained and distributed. Just as important, we were able to assure continued employment through the worst of the pandemic for a large number of our members.

    Letter to Southwest Airlines regarding Good Faith Negotiation of Accommodation of Disability/Religious Beliefs Related to COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate
    10/18/21 - AMFA
    October 18, 2021 -- I write in follow-up to recent correspondence (Ref. 1-3), grievance SWA-7687, and representations by Southwest in a recent court filing. First, notwithstanding my request to commence bargaining (Ref. 1) regarding effects of the recent policy change implementing a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine, and some back and forth since then (Ref. 2, 3), we still await the start of meaningful discussions. Time is of the essence on this particular issue and AMFA stands ready and willing to enter into meaningful discussions on the effects of Southwest’s compliance with the September 9, 2021, Presidential Executive Order 14042 now. Of particular concern is how Southwest will reasonably accommodate those who object to COVID-19 vaccination on grounds of religion and disability. To this effect, we note that United has accommodate maintenance personnel with these objections via a combination of twice weekly COVID testing and masking.
