March 27, 2020

Dear fellow members:  

The announcement of Company wide ETO has brought numerous questions to light.  The option and process were never presented to your board before publication but some clarification has subsequently been outlined.  If you are interested in participating in this program, it will be offered in seniority order.  We are presently working with the company on additional options to reduce work schedules (part time, giveaways) and will keep you advised as details become available.  Together we will all weather the challenge of the unseen enemy of COVID-19, thanks for your help and understanding.  

Best regards, 

For the Executive Board,


Gerald H. Bradley

Fellow Instrutors,

March 21, 2020

Please respond to the email sent to you today with a link to SURVEY MONKEY. The Executive Board needs your input should the Company choose to exercise Article 20, Part Time and Article 21, Leaves of Absence in our Collective Bargaining Agreement. There are daily changes in approaches beging considered by the Company during this PANDEMIC and period of operational uncertainty.  

Additionally, there is an Airline Aid Bill being currently debated by the US Congress which, if passed and signed into law, would help both Airlines and Labor. Please be assured that your Executive Board will represent your interests as Flight Crew Training Instructors as the Company works though this crisis. This is uncharted territory for Southwest Airlines. All of us will weather this storm.

For the Executive Board,


Gerald H. Bradley
