COVID-19 is still very much a threat to our health, jobs, industry and entire country.

In a letter to Congressional leadership, the leaders of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA), the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), the Communications Workers of America (CWA), the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), the Transport Workers Union (TWU), and the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), are calling on lawmakers to extend the Payroll Support Program (PSP) in the CARES Act through March 31, 2021.

It has never been more urgent to organize for our Flight Attendant union at Delta. Management comes and goes. We are the constant.

But in a crisis, we can’t count on anything. Without a contract, management can change things overnight. They are already telling us every day how things are changing, without discussion or anything in black and white to protect us.

COVID-19 has forced the country into an unprecedented emergency and the murder of George Floyd has propelled our nation into the streets to demand change and declare that Black Lives Matter. The AFA Executive Board unanimously passed our Black Lives matter resolution last week.

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA Executive Board unanimously adopted the following resolution on June 5, 2020:

WHEREAS, the murder of George Floyd is just one in a long line of incidents of law enforcement officers killing Black people; and,

WHEREAS, Black, brown and indigenous people face police violence, prosecution and incarceration in disproportionate numbers; and,

AFA’s mission is to unite all Flight Attendants and promote equality and employment for all, regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. This has been codified in our Constitution since 1976.
“The rage coursing through the streets of Minneapolis and other cities is born from hundreds of years of oppression, exploitation and violence boiling over. I do not cheer any form of violence, but we must be clear eyed about where core responsibility lies.
Today is International Flight Attendant Appreciation Day! Thank you, Aviation’s First Responders, for all that you do and for serving as essential workers throughout this pandemic.

Delta Flight Attendants are receiving our July schedules. So far, management has refused to put in place a minimum monthly guarantee like the United and American contracts. Management instead claim those flying will have a minimum schedule value in the low 70 hours. Does this match your schedule value reality?

What schedule value did you bid for July? How many hours were you actually awarded?
