Letter from NEC Regarding Air21
07/30/14 - AMFA
July 30, 2014 -- In the July edition of the Grapevine Newsletter we wrote extensively about AMFA’s safety initiative. AMFA believes wholeheartedly that safety is our number one priority. We sincerely understand that our craft’s relationship with the flying public is one of safety and dutifully stand by our mantra, “Safety in the air begins with quality maintenance on the ground.” To that end, this month, one of our members working for Southwest Airlines filed an AIR21 Whistle Blower complaint against Southwest Airlines under 49 U.S.C §42121 with the United States Department of Labor. In his complaint, the aircraft maintenance technician states that he was reprimanded for reporting maintenance issues that his Base Manager and Manager of Maintenance deemed “working outside of scope of assigned task.”
