Who are the 16% that vote against it? 30% raise not good enough?

The 4 year contract also provides compensation going back the 4 years of negotiations and has changes to the retirement plan. Maybe some did not find the terms satisfactory. Who knows?

Did you by chance mean to type "you're"? I don't believe Southwest serves Sioux City.

Southwest serves Omaha, the closest connection to Sioux City.

I was one of the last passengers getting off a late Southwest flight one evening. As I came up the aisle, there was the captain with a garbage bag going through the seats with the cabin crew, pitching in to get the flight back on time. Pretty much exemplifies the Southwest culture. Great airline.

warren..southwest has always had a different system than other carriers, where a ground crew does not clean the cabin or pick up garbage or check the seats at each stop..the flight attendants do that as well as preparing their carts for service before takeoff..i agree that it is a lovely gesture for the captain to assist the flight attendants in getting the trash picked up,but its to his advantage to get the passengers on and the flight out on time..their ground crews only clean at the overnight destination..i am happy for the cockpit crews that they received a raise..southwests pilots have always been paid a bit better than some other carriers anyway..

Since they only get paid for the time the aircraft is out of the blocks that is some incentive to pitch in-although other airline flight crews do not seem to share that enthusiasm.
