When Charlene Carter, a flight attendant for Southwest Airlines was fired in 2017, it raised a number of questions and concerns about how and why this happened. Carter had recently quit the Transport Workers Union Local 556 after voicing her opinions on why she didn’t like being forced to pay fees to union bosses pushing issues that had nothing to do with her job. So there was reason to believe that her firing was in retaliation to her opposition to the union president. Much of this controversy had to do with political and religious disagreements between Carter and the union president, allegedly challenging Carter’s rights to free speech and religion. As a result of the multitude of issues Carter faced with the union and its leadership, she filed a lawsuit shortly after.
Now, the union that once supposedly represented Charlene Carter and every other Southwest flight attendant is trying to get her case thrown out completely. They are doing everything they can to protect themselves and their image.

No union, but especially not one with multiple top officials convicted in federal court of accepting bribes and embezzling workers’ dues money, should be allowed to impose unionization on workers by colluding with company officials to bypass a secret ballot vote. That’s why it is critical that any state incentive package includes a condition that the decision over whether to unionize the proposed Ford-SK Innovation Western Tennessee plant be made with workers having the full protection of a federally supervised secret ballot vote, and absent any backroom deal between company and UAW officials.
