In a summer that has been plagued by frustrated pilots, glitches, and a severe aircraft malfunction, Southwest Airlines has seen better days.

Also, according to Time, “Four unions that represent more than two thirds of the company’s 52,000 employees called for the resignations of CEO Gary Kelly and COO Mike Van de Ven, saying they were putting stock performance over investments in people and infrastructure.”

However, in a move to appease its workers, the carrier reached an agreement with pilots Wednesday to raise their incomes by 15 percent immediately. The temporary contract also sees the wages increasing by 3 percent per year for the next for years.
