I’ve been a Delta flight attendant for 4 years, and I’m thrilled to be part of organizing our union.

The need is clear. Flight Attendants at Delta shared story after story of outrageous demands by management: people who have been rerouted three times, or calls coming in at 2 and 3 in the morning to move trips up by as much as 12 hours, or Flight Attendants placed in scheduling nightmares after commuter flights are canceled without any support. Other airlines with contracts can’t even contemplate these situations.

Operational meltdowns aren't unique to Delta, but because we don't have a contract, Delta management does have the unique ability to throw our scheduling “rules” out the door for “the needs of the operation."

The company is a name brand around the world. They pride themselves on being innovative, leading their industry, and treating their employees like “family.”

You could write all that about Delta, but we’re talking about Starbucks. And just like Delta, when Starbucks workers asked for a seat at the table, management started an all-out union busting blitz.

Trip Construction has the potential to significantly affect our quality of life for better or worse. At Delta, it has been a major source of concern especially since the beginning of COVID. We’ve seen sit times increase, increase in maximum duty days with minimum rest, transcons followed by a penalty lap, domestic trips with multiple legs and constant reroutes. The list goes on and on.
If you see me on the line, come and say hi! I’m super excited to continue organizing and feel really hopeful about this next year and what we’re going to accomplish.

As of March 31, 2022, Delta Flight Attendants must wear one of three sets of approved uniform lines made by Lands End with very limited exceptions for supply chain issues only.

You are doing it! You’re building your union and management doesn’t want to lose total control by having to respond to your legal rights at work as union members.

Today, management launched an email full of the same old tired talking points and a new website built by high dollar, third party union busters. So much for the direct relationship - they’d rather spend millions to avoid the legal relationship that comes with your standing at Delta as professional, union Flight Attendants.

This morning at VELVET, management announced a 4% pay increase for Delta employees, effective May 1. They chose to tell a small group so the rumors could start to fly ahead of the company-wide announcement that came moments ago.

We’ll take the raise and a real voice on the job!

Is this in response to our campaign or the pilots picketing last week? Likely these things both contributed as part of an effort to divide Delta workers who are organizing to make Delta a better place to work.

Effective March 31, 2022, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will require the Known Crewmember (KCM) Program eligible crewmembers to scan a KCM-issued barcode card when utilizing a KCM access point. Crewmembers will no longer be permitted to manually enter their KCM data.

Management’s long promised Flight Attendant Pay, Work Rules and Benefits Comparison (“OAL Comparison”) is a selection of cherry-picked Delta favorable items. It ignores contractual guarantees. Management also only compared United and American, leaving out other competitors like Southwest, Alaska, Hawaiian and more.
