Southwest sues mechanics union alleging deliberate slowdowns

Southwest Airlines filed a lawsuit against its mechanics union on Thursday, accusing the workers of an illegal campaign to disrupt operations. The airlines alleges the union is doing so to improve their position in prolonged labor talks. Southwest and the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association have been in contract negotiations since 2012.

Sounds like South West putting profits above Safety again.

Sounds to me that airline deregulation has failed. What seems to be proved is that the expectation of getting the best for cheap doesn't work now and never has.

before you all get upity they clearly have reason to suspect the union, if not evidence of it for litigation. they feel confident enough to take it to court.
