Southwest Airlines and its flight dispatchers extend contract through 2019

Southwest Airlines and the Transport Workers Union (TWU) 550, representing the carrier’s 250 flight dispatchers, have come to terms on a new four-year contract extension. News of the tentative agreement comes on the heels of a deal with the Company’s Customer Service Agents and Customer Representatives last December and only days after its Flight Simulator Technicians ratified their new four-year contract. The agreement with Dispatchers amends the group’s current contract and provides adjusted wage-scale increases, as well as continued opportunities for bonuses that are tied to individual and Company performances.
