Not surprisingly, Delta and the pilots cut a deal, which is still on the table, that would slash $350 million a year from our profit sharing pool and hand it over to the pilots and Delta management if Delta earns $6 billion or more. Analysts estimate Delta will earn over the $6 billion threshold in 2015.
Why should the pilots and Delta dictate our future? We need a Voice so we can shape our future!
The facts are not pretty. Delta is by far the industry-leader in financial and operating performance and is second only to unionized Alaska Airlines in customer satisfaction.
Yet, we rank middle-of-the pack in wage rates, have the costliest health insurance among industry Flight Attendants, have no protections from arbitrary discipline and termination and our “work-rules” are really just suggestions.
We will change this with a Voice.
Thousands of Delta Flight Attendants have submitted their new A-cards and we are moving closer every day to achieving our goal of filing for the election we deserve to have.
