Southwest Pilots to Picket Next Week at Dallas Hub

For the first time in its history, Southwest pilots are planning to picket at the airline’s main U.S. hub, Dallas Love Field, on Wednesday, February 3.

The Southwest Airlines Pilots’ Association (SWAPA) is upset about a lack of contract after nearly four years of negotiation, while their counterparts at American Airlines and United Airlines have gotten new contracts.

Southwest said it is eager to resume negotiations.
