      Do you have to sign a new card every year?

        Julienne–your a-card is valid for 12 months from the date you signed. For example, if you signed and submitted your a-card on June 25, 2015, then it is valid until June 25, 2016. Hope this answers your question. Thanks!!

      You are absolutely right. We need and deserve union representation. Specially now with eminent terror attack threat. If we don’t have protection now we will lose even more. I hope more of our co-workers would not only vote pro union but also change this stupid mindset that ” the company is there for us” it is not. We are, right now, just numbers.

    It is past time for a voice for the future. It is time to take a responsible part in your future with a collective voice. Only you can decide what you (we) deserve with work rules, compensation, safety and retirement. Negotiations is the way to go and collectively. If you’re tired of the hand me downs and lecture about what we deserve then sign a card and urge everyone to do so as well. We CAN DO IT….

    We need a voice, and should be valued and respected. Over 19 years, devoted, loyal, honest, hardworking, committed, caring and giving my best, and I am now homeless and have been since my medical tragedy. Prior to my medical leave to have spinal surgery, vertebrae replacement-or the loss of the use of my legs, I earned over $62,000.00, always picking up extra trips. I am receiving $951 a month on disability. Three years of no income, $951 a mth this past year. I live in my car, have permanent spinal cord damage, sold every asset I had, and no matter who I speak to at Delta (except for the most wonderful people at the care fund) they tell me thats the way it is.

    We don’t think we need a union UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS TO US!
    I was bullied and harassed at work for 4 years until I finally stood up and wrote a letter to management asking for help. Although they “went through the motions” to cover themselves, in the end they told me they didn’t believe it ever happened! They told me they didn’t want to hear anything else about it-no emails, no phone calls-no talking ever again about it to ANYONE! I was in bed for a week after that and missed my daughter’s 16th bday party due to immobilizing depression.
    After more than 28 years of being a hard working dependable employee with nothing in my file, I was absolutely stunned to have been treated this way by the management of a company I had loved and trusted. I still love Delta but absolutely have lost all trust in them. It is what it is…but are we going to continue sitting in the problem pretending its not really happening?? No! We can GET INTO THE SOLUTION and DO something about this kind of bull—- that’s STILL going on at Delta Airlines…VOTE YES.

    Love Delta-but also love having a union. It’s like having insurance. They are there if you need them. Someone in our corner if push comes to shove. It makes gray areas black and white. The union isn’t a “golden ticket” that gets you out of every situation. We still have to work hard, be honest, do our best for our customers, but in sticky situations such as duty periods, pay, scheduling, passenger situations, supplies, rest, etc-they are there to give us the straight story. They really know their stuff. UNION STRONG!

    Is a fair election even possible???
    Lord help us!

    I couldn’t agree with you more! Thank you for that! Was well spoken, professional, needed!

    We need a contract! We need Legal protection, and representation! We need safe and smart workable galleys, where our valuables, and our well being are protected. certainly the same sick /injury/ protection and time as our pilot group!
    We need the lies exposed and the truth understood by all.
    As in our government- the corruption should be exposed and not accepted… It was founded on moral values to protect the rights of the people to protect themselves, their families, their livelihood and way of life, under God! So in our company, we the people, the front line work force, as well as all the work force ought to be valued and protected and respected and appropriately compensated! Not devalued pawns, used and sacrificed. A “good company” truly values all its work force, in dignity!! In truth! Respecting, protecting, compensating…
    Understanding that when run from the top down by true values~ the company takes care of its work force, the work force takes care of its customers, and the customers support the company… That is the formula for greatness ! The formula founded on moral values!
    in our county, the attrossities in its history can not be undone now, (should not be rewritten or erased or forgotten) but with appreciation for the intent and moral conviction on which she was founded, we must not accept corruption, bring back the values, protect the freedom of the citizens! Then we have a great country to live in! When we expose corruption and protect the workforce with value and dignity, then we have a great company to work for! And a delighted public following!

    It’s redundant, but what does it take for enlightenment? We have lost respect, money, Vacation, sick options, medical, galleys, jump seats, sufficient F/A’s for increased workloads, work rules, duty rigs, retirement, etc. insult to injury: S.S. offset. The erosion of our Benefits can only be curtailed by a Union Vote! Look at UAL, SWA, AL contracts!

    Delta flight attendants are regarded as the best in the airline industry according to Delta Management and the most recent independent surveys. We are not sure if all of us are aware of the major differences that we as a flight attendant group have versus the pilots in work rules, pension and other areas that are a major source of concern to us.

    The following are the major differences:

    1. PENSION OR 401K:

    The pilot group of captains and first officers (co-pilots) get a guaranteed 16% that means a range between $3000 to $ $5000 per month or $36,000 to $60,000 per year, or a pilot with 30 years of service gets to $1,800,000 (almost 2 million dollars) based on 85 hour monthly schedule so almost all the pilots will get that amount at retirement.
    vs
    The flight attendant group get 3% unmatched and 6% matched by Delta IF and ONLY IF the flight attendant decides to put 6% of their own money for a total of 9% from Delta and if they do not put their own 6% then they get ONLY 3% that means a range between with junior F A pay of $3000 to $5100 for senior F A ($3000 X 3%) =$90 to ($5100 X 3%)=$153 per month or $1080 to $1836 per year or a flight attendant with 30 years of service Delta’s average contributions $32,400 to $55,080 based on 85 monthly schedule.
    If F A puts 6% (not easy for those who are junior making barely $2000 each month after taxes) of their own salary then Delta will match 6% for a total of 9% from Delta vs 16% from Delta given to our Pilot brethren with 0% match from Pilots.

    EVERY MONTH THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT GROUP WILL GET $800 TO $1200 IN MONTHLY PENSION AT RETIREMENT.
    VS
    EVERY MONTH THE PILOT GROUP WILL GET $16,000 to $20,000 OR MORE IN MONTHLY PENSION AT RETIREMENT.
    Please ask any ACCOUNTANT to calculate your retirement by giving them your monthly income and Delta’s 3% or 9% (if you put your own 6%)
    IS THIS A FAIR RETIREMENT PLAN? WE ARE PART OF DELTA FAMILY ARE WE NOT? That is how Mr. Bastion introduces us on every safety videos. So why the step-motherly treatment for when we retire?

    2. SICK TIME:

    Pilots get 270 hours per year where doctor’s note IS NOT required for the first 100 hours, holidays or not.
    vs
    Flight attendants get 56 hours per year where a doctor’s note IS required for the very first hour if it is during holidays.

    Who is more exposed to the medical conditions (SARS, EBOLA, BIRD FLU, TUBERCULOSIS ETC.) of the passengers in the cabin of the aircraft for 1 to 15 hours at a time, the pilots or flight attendants?

    3. PAY INCREASES:

    The pilot group: will have received 31% raises from 2015 through 2019 January. (3% in 2015, 18% 2016 retro to Jan. 2016, 3% Jan. 2017, 3% Jan.2018 and 4% Jan.2019). Retro active to January 2016 will generate the pilots an extra $35,000 to $70,000 for the year.
    Flight attendant group: will get 5% post active meaning on April 1st 2017 no back pay at all.

    3. Overtime :

    GREEN SLIP Pilots 2X ( double their hourly rate of $160×2=$320 per hour for narrow body pilots and $320×2=$640 per hour for wide body pilots. So a 3 or 4 day trip worth 20 to 25 hours is worth more than $6400 to $8000 for narrow body Captain to $12,800 to $16,000 for a wide body Captain
    Plus they get another 16% of that amount added to their retirement pension which is another $1000 to $2500.
    VS
    F/As just IPY-4 just 4 extra hours of overtime pay range $108 to $250 for a 3 or 4 day trip worth 20 to 25 hours.

    $6400 to $16000 vs $108 to $250

    4. Work Rules:

    Pilots minimum day credit 5:15
    F / As minimum day credit 4:45

    Pilots get extra 5:15 on a layover when they sit an extra day at a layover city (example 3 day trip where pilots fly on day 1, lay over 24 hours or longer on day 2, and fly again on day 3 will get total credit 15:45 that is 5:15 for each day.
    F / As on similar 3 day trip do not get the minimum credit 4:45 on day 2 of the lay over. Total credit 9:30 that is 4:45 for day 1 and 4:45 for day 3.
    Pilots =15:45 minimum credit hrs.
    F/As = 9:30 minimum credit hours

    Laundry Expenses:
    4 days or longer international flight :
    pilots get $50 dry cleaning allowance and for 6 days $100 and 8 days $150
    vs
    F/As = $0

    Deadhead International :

    Pilots have Guaranteed Business Class Seat
    F/As No Such Guarantees

    Plus a lot more that too long to be listed.
