WN’s labor relations are starting to look more and more like those of their competitor in Fort Worth.
Interesting, who in the airline industry and overall work environment in the USA was claiming that WN labor relations were the Gold Standard, what we do know is that Union membership in the USA has been declining for decades, no other major airline or business with similar size staff numbers were attempting to mimic WN union relations, indeed a lot of other airlines and business house were doing all they can to go in the other direction. Indeed the claim is that the 787 production method was put in place to minimize the effect of unions on Boeing's operations.
So as a study case, is it the management who are now following the path of other business houses in the USA or the union members following the activism of the other unions?
