During an unprecedented crisis, it is more important than ever that Flight Attendants have a voice in our workplace.

Back to the Skies, We're Immunized!

Have you gotten your vaccine yet?

Delta management has always kept our hourly pay on par with the pay scales at the unionized airlines, United and American, in an effort to keep us from unionizing. While top line compensation like hourly pay may look the same or even a little better, there are hidden costs and missed compensation for us at Delta.

Earlier this week, eight people -- six of whom were Asian women -- were killed in the Atlanta shootings at three spas. The incident has shaken many in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, including Flight Attendants.
Delta’s executive “adjustment” payments may be legal, but they’re just one more reminder that management isn’t looking out for us—they’re looking out for themselves.
We did it again! Congress passed the American Rescue Plan, extending our Payroll Support Program for Flight Attendants and all aviation workers through September 30, 2021. President Biden will sign the bill into law this week.
After December and January proved to be the deadliest of the pandemic in the United States, February is beginning to show positive signs. Even as the curve is flattening, vaccines becoming more available and PPE supply increasing, Flight Attendants still face unique challenges even among essential frontline workers.
We won’t bury the lead —everything is on track in the legislative process to again secure all of the protections of the Payroll Support Program (PSP) April 1, 2021-September 30, 2021. There’s no doubt we are all feeling the emotional toil of the chaos and uncertainty from July-December 2020, but we are now in an organized, step-by-step legislative process for the American Rescue Plan that has a deadline of March 14th, due to expiring unemployment benefits.
What a year it’s been. It’s hard to believe that just one year ago we were receiving profit sharing bonus checks after Delta broke records. Every airline was hiring and there was unprecedented opportunity across our industry.
Aviation is critical for vaccine distribution, and the people on the frontlines of aviation need priority vaccination. AFA has called on the federal government to set up vaccination clinics at airports to make it easy for aviation workers to access both their first and second doses. This is urgent and we are working with the new administration to make this a priority to protect workers and effectively eradicate the virus.
The Senate is moving forward tonight on important procedural votes to pass COVID-19 Relief for Americans, using President Biden’s American Rescue Plan as a foundation. A lot of good things happened today, so please read through the whole article!
