Southwest Airlines Ramp Agents Prepare to Picket

About 8,000 Southwest Airlines ramp agents who are members of the Transport Workers Union Local 555 plan to picket the airline’s annual meeting in Houston on Wednesday. 

The Chicago Business Journal reports agents are concerned that Southwest hasn’t agreed to a new contract in talks that have dragged on since 2011. Meanwhile, the airline has hired new ramp agents at more than $10 per hour, while senior workers haven’t had a pay raise since 2010, the union says.
