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.

Other airlines with contracts can’t even contemplate these situations.

Three years ago, together we won our #FightFor10 with an overwhelming bipartisan vote to raise our minimum irreducible rest to 10 hours, equal with the pilots.

The last 19 months have been grueling for Delta Flight Attendants.

We have lived ‘shared sacrifice’—tens of thousands of Flight Attendants took unpaid PLOCs to save jobs and help the airline through. Thousands more left the airline permanently.

Today, Delta management reported the first profitable quarter since 2019 as the U.S. aviation industry climbs towards recovery. Meanwhile management is asking more and more from us. Here’s just a few of the “added” duties management has announced since the pandemic began:
