SWA Payroll Issues
A meeting was recently held with Southwest Airlines to discuss the payroll issues AMFA members are experiencing. The meeting was related to a large percentage of payroll discrepancies when calculating overtime and otherwise. The meeting entailed discussion and disclosure by the Company on the amount of discrepancies they have found, and we reviewed charts they have compiled depicting the errors.
We have interacted with the Company, and they have agreed to allow members to go to their respective supervisor and pull their Kronos report at any time it is requested. It was also established that your direct supervisor has full authority to correct any payroll issues you may have with payroll prior to the payday. The Company also agreed that they would provide a memo on the requirements for an overtime exception log.
We will continue to remain abreast of the situation. Please be aware that everyone should pay close attention to their payroll ledgers. If you have any further questions, please contact your Local Airline Representative.
