Here we are at the beginning of June — already! Summer is upon us, and just as the seasons are changing, we are also working on a few changes to our Waypoint newsletter. Because we want to connect with you on a more timely basis, we have decided to do a shorter and more frequent e-newsletter so that you don’t miss any of the upcoming good stuff.
So far this year, we’ve had two amazing SWAPA Fam Jam Celebration Events. It has been wonderful rekindling our bonds with old friends along with making new ones these past few months. The pandemic changed a lot of things, but one thing is certain: We remember how important it is to stick together. If you can, make your way to Baltimore on July 21 to join SWAPA for some family fun and hear from your NC on what's happening with negotiations.
Speaking of negotiations, it’s no secret that our Pilots need a new contract. Unfortunately, our Negotiating team led by CA Jody Reven has made little headway with the Company on reaching an agreement regarding the topics that are important us. When negotiation stall, our Strike Preparedness Committee (SPC) is called upon to organize an informational picket (IP). These IPs are a valuable tool to show the Company how united we are as a group in our frustrations. One is scheduled for June 21 at DAL Love Field and more will surely be on the horizon. If you'd like to volunteer your time at a picketing event, click here to register.
Please continue to read the Waypoint and stay up-to-date on everything going on at SWAPA. If you haven’t already, join our SWAPAfamily Facebook group (link below). Weekly updates are posted in our group as well as great conversations regarding what’s going on. Make no mistake, you and your family are our main priority. We have resources for your entire family should you need them. Like we always say, Call SWAPA First if you need help, guidance, or simply have a question. We love hearing from you! Hope to see you at an event very soon!
