Southwest Airlines’ Material Specialists approve new agreement

Southwest Airlines has reported that the Company’s Material Specialists, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), have voted in favor of a new, five-year contract.

“With this new agreement, our Material Specialists will be rewarded with pay increases throughout the next five years, while the Company gains efficiencies across our operation,” said Vice President of Labor Relations Russell McCrady. “I appreciate our relationship with the IBT, and both parties worked hard to reach the best solution for both our Material Specialists and Southwest.”

The more than 300 Material Specialists at Southwest oversee the Company’s technical operation inventory management across the network. The newly-ratified contract is effective immediately and becomes amendable in April 2024.
