Kincare Update: Senator Bradford Sends Letter Of Support

In April of this year the TWU California State Conference, which includes representatives of our own local 555 in addition to Local 556 and others met with state representatives in Sacramento to discuss the many issues facing our unions. The primary issue addressed by locals 555 and 556 were the Company's misapplication of California's sick leave laws, specifically Kincare. As a result of the aforementioned efforts, California State Senator Steve Bradford of the 35th District sent the following letter to Southwest Airlines' General Counsel Juan Suarez. While the fight is not over, this is another step toward ensuring the rights of our California members are protected as the legislature has intended.
