IAM Delta Flight Attendants

BI-WEEKLY PAY, NO SAY

They claim we have “Voices,” that our feedback matters, that IFS is all about transparency.
 
We were never consulted before Delta management announced that our pay structure would change. Nobody ever asked. They didn’t have to, because we’ve never had a say in our pay, benefits, or working conditions.
 
No one in management cared that the new compensation process could force us to completely alter our flying schedule, choking the very flexibility that attracted us to this career.
 
You know who does have a voice? Who actually gets to help decide work-life changes? Unionized employees.
 
IFS management’s phrases like “earnings potential,” “understanding your pay,” and “seamless improvements” would trigger an investigation by union workers, their representatives, and their legal staff. They’d stop the clock on one-sided schemes, dig deeper, and negotiate exactly how pay should be reconciled and distributed.
 
Maybe bi-weekly compensation will work out, maybe not. The jury’s still out (although there was never a trial). Like everything else here at Delta Air Lines, without a contract and a real voice, we’ll just have to take management’s endless curveballs, from staffing cuts to profit sharing cuts to workspace cuts, and now, to when our paychecks get cut.
 
Sign an IAM card and gain a say, the union way.

MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT: SIGN AN IAM CARD

The EIG has reached the apex of involvement in our working life: they’ve spent months deliberating removal of our uniform belt, and letting us wear a sweater in the airport.
 
Priorities?
 
Thankfully for Delta management, the archaic Railway Labor Act mostly ignores budget-draining employee/management committees like the EIG, as long as they DON'T perform a collective bargaining function — like increasing rates of pay.
 
By definition, Delta must keep the EIG irrelevant to our compensation, or risk violating workers’ rights laws!
 
Real representation by an elected labor union will bring changes like overtime pay for hours flown above the published average, increases in staffing, flight pay, sick time, and 401(k) contributions.
 
It’s time we get real.
 
Our career priorities can be realistically addressed through legally binding contract negotiations with top leadership, union lawyers and elected IAM Delta Flight Attendant officers—not student council meetings with bottom rung managers.
 
Sign an IAM card, get a friend to do the same, and let’s get real.
 
If a manager or EIG member claims they’re bargaining in relation to pay, or cites so-called “improvements” to influence you against signing a union authorization card, please submit an online interference report.

Senator Bernie Sanders Supports IAM-Delta Organizing Campaigns

United States Senator Bernie Sanders today released a video endorsing the IAM’s organizing campaigns at Delta Air Lines.

The video shows Senator Sanders meeting with IAM-Delta organizers and discussing Delta’s notorious anti-union tactics which are designed to ensure employees are forced to continue acquiescing to Delta’s will.

"You're seeing this very profitable corporation doing everything that it can to prevent the formation of that union," said Sanders.
