Southwest Airlines' Flight Simulator Technicians Ratify New Agreement

Southwest Airlines' Flight Simulator Technicians, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT), have ratified a new four-year contract. The agreement rewards Southwest's highly skilled and productive IBT-represented Employees with fixed rate increases, variable rate increases tied to Company performance, ratification and reliability bonuses. Despite an enormous demand for pilot training in the flight simulators-more than 50,000 hours in 2014-Southwest's Simulator Technicians have maintained the equipment at virtually 100% reliability. Such dependability has allowed the Company to train new-hire pilots, upgrade hundreds of new Captains, and finalize the AirTran integration, all the while completing annual recurrent training for nearly 8,000 pilots.
