Moments ago, TSA announced it is extending the mask enforcement directive to September 13, 2021. Earlier this month, our union called for the directive to be extended in a letter to TSA Administrator Pekoske and AFA President Sara Nelson testified on the issue before the Senate Subcommittee Subcommittee on Aviation Safety, Operations, and Innovation.

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

“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?

On May 21st, AFA held a Town Hall Conference Call to answer questions in real time from Delta Flight Attendants about our efforts to become full members with AFA as well as issues surrounding COVID-19.

Dear Delta Flight Attendants,

Flight Attendants and the entire aviation industry have some short term financial stability now with the CARES Act and money going to our airlines for frontline worker payroll. We are working to make sure that money is delivered to us as intended. Our airline, industry, and country are still combatting the COVID-19 pandemic and preparing for the safety and health changes necessary to stop spread of the virus in aviation and give the public confidence in returning to the air.

U.S. airlines across the industry received $25 billion in federal grants to keep Flight Attendants and other frontline aviation workers on the payroll through September 30th. Our collective action helped Delta management secure $5 billion alone to pay Delta Flight Attendants, pilots, gate agents, and more Delta workers.
