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!

Have you gotten your vaccine yet?

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.

Flight Attendants and the entire aviation industry have experienced unprecedented changes and challenges in the last few months as our airline, industry and country combat the COVID-19 pandemic. We had events planned across the system in March and April that have been postponed. But we can still meet virtually! 

This coming Thursday, April 9th at 5pmET join Delta AFA for a Town Hall Call to talk about what Flight Attendants are facing, where our campaign goes from here, and get your questions answered.

April 3, 2020 — As part of the COVID-19 Relief Act enacted last week, Congress increased by $600 the amount of weekly Unemployment Insurance (UI) payments that laid off and furloughed workers can receive through July 31, 2020.

The grants in the relief package provide paychecks for workers, not bailouts for airlines. Secretary Mnuchin is threatening to take equity on the grants -- leveraging the very people who make aviation fly and who right now are on the frontlines of this pandemic. We are asking President Trump to make sure the Treasury Secretary doesn't dismantle the bipartisan agreement to keep us in our jobs, connected to our paychecks and healthcare. Join us!
We've seen catastrophe before. We know what didn't work before and we won't let those things happen again. We need relief that focuses on real people. And we have a plan for that. Send a letter to your Members of Congress to demand that any public relief plan be a People First plan with legally-binding rules, including paycheck continuation.

The airline industry is in crisis. Our jobs and our paychecks are on the line. We are working around the clock to get a relief package in place that focuses on all of us and our jobs. This is not a bailout. We don't need a government package like the past where airline executives took bonuses while forcing concessions on us through bankruptcy.

COVID-19 Airline Relief Starts with Workers

Dear Delta Flying Partners:

This is a really difficult and uncertain time across the industry and around the world. The capacity cuts that CEO Ed Bastian announced yesterday are deep: “an overall capacity reduction in the next few months of 40 percent – the largest capacity reduction in Delta’s history, including 2001.” More details from his announcement are included at the end of this newsletter update.
