DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – After working without a new contract for four years, nearly 300 Southwest Airlines mechanics say they’ve had enough.

So along with pilots, flight attendants, and other union workers who support them, they picketed at Dallas Love Field Friday.

Dale Dixon, President of AMFA Local 11 says, “We send a message to Southwest Airlines, that we’re professionals, we’ve not had a raise in four years.”

Mechanics here say money isn’t the issue. Instead, they’re concerned about their jobs in the long term.
