Teamsters Union Says It Remains Open to Cost Savings Discussions With Southwest Airlines

Reuters | |

The International Brotherhood of Teamsters remains open to cost-savings talks with Southwest Airlines, a spokeswoman said on Monday following news last week that the airline had sent notices of potential furloughs to 42 material specialists represented by the union.

Southwest said on Friday it had sent the warnings of furloughs, which would be the first in the company’s history, because the union was discontinuing all cost-savings negotiations for its material specialists.
