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!

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.

Congress has until October 1st to save our jobs! Inaction is not an option and there is growing support for a full relief bill. Everyone “supports us.” True support for the American worker comes in the form of a relief bill. We need every Flight Attendant, regardless of status, to tweet your lawmakers every day until October 1st.

Delta management told Flight Attendants that our workgroup will be overstaffed by 3,000 Flight Attendants on October 1, if the Payroll Support Program is not extended. Management said at least 3,000 Flight Attendants would need to take other options to "offset the overage."

Flight Attendants across the industry including Delta Flight Attendant AFA activists have been pushing Congress to extend the Payroll Support Program. On Wednesday, 16 Senate Republicans confirmed support of the Payroll Support Program. Senate Democrats already support the extension and have proposed this as part of the full COVID-19 relief package. This means more than 60 Senators support our Payroll Support Program extension to March 31, 2021.

Flight Attendants and the entire aviation industry are united to ensure the Payroll Support Program (PSP) in the CARES Act is extended. 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.

We're all fighting to extend the Payroll Support Program through March 31, 2021. This Program has kept Delta Flight Attendants and hundreds of thousands of other aviation workers on the job during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through our campaign, Delta Flight Attendants are calling and writing our flying partners urging us to take action. And we need action now more than ever!

COVID-19 is still very much a threat to our health, jobs, industry and entire country. Every airline is reviewing current staffing levels and predictions for the fall, as payroll support and no involuntary furlough requirements end October 1. That’s why we are fighting to extend the CARES Act Payroll Support Program and our job protections through March 2021.
