(Dallas, TX) -- Southwest Airlines is suing its mechanics' union, claiming they recently put the airline into a bind by unnecessarily grounding planes. The Dallas-based carrier had to cancel or delay hundreds of flights as a result of aircrafts sitting on the ground. The lawsuit accuses the workers of taking planes out of service for trivial maintenance issues in an effort to get the upper hand in contract talks. Southwest has been in ongoing contract negotiations with the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association for more than six years.
