As a former CLE ramper with you I whole heartedly disagree. If they stay at 12 flights and under I will believe it will be contract.
These will not be contract. They’ll be WN employees and likely employees from MDW, HOU, and FLL depending on the bidding of the positions.
It all depends on the contract between the union and WN.
Case and point when UA went back into MDW, UA created a bid and ORD employees (ramp, C.S. mechanics) were able to bid for MDW. UA could not contract out MDW because MDW is covered by ORD's contract. If UA were to ever go back into MDW the same rules would apply we can not contract out above or below the wing work or maintenance at MDW. If the unions representing ramp, C.S. and mechanics have similar language in their contract then WN would not be able to contract out ORD and IAH. But if no such language exist then it is any ones guess which way WN will go.
