Question: Many Delta Flight Attendants have recently asked, “Why aren’t IAM-Delta activists sitting visibility anymore?”
Answer: Because Delta management doesn’t want activists communicating with colleagues about union representation, plain and simple.
But, since IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW for management to discriminate against us for supporting representation, Delta’s legal team had to create an intentionally puzzling workaround.
Updated corporate policy FORBIDS activists from displaying flyers, signs, or other “message bearing” materials in “work areas” or in areas “not being used for work purposes.”
Confused by that unclear language in “advocacy” memos? It’s part of the corporate plan!
The reality is that managers may not prohibit us from talking about representation during working time, since they permit us to talk about other non-work-related matters during working time.
We activists are still at it, we’re just not…flashy!
