A View From the Top; James L. Lucas Jr.

james-l-lucasDear Delta Flight Attendant colleague,

I have received the top customer commendation award five times since becoming Delta, six with Northwest Airlines and all while supporting union representation for Flight Attendants.

For me, it has never been about which company I worked for, or what particular "culture" was being promoted. It was always about publicly raising the stature of our Flight Attendant profession by going above and beyond for customers EVERY time, in every possible way, no matter the circumstances.

The positive result is twofold: I feel respected by passengers and fellow crew members, and, most importantly, I help make the company as successful as possible, assuring profits and continued employment in a field of work that I love!

An industry leading, legally binding agreement between Delta Flight Attendants and management would enhance our career with Delta, making it even more secure, and finally giving us a true voice in all aspects of our job.

Who is better qualified to negotiate for Delta Flight Attendants than Delta Flight Attendants? To set safe work rules, health insurance benefits, retirement security and job protection than our very own peer negotiators?

Who better? Those same Delta Flight Attendants backed by the experience, influence and experts of the IAM.

When we elect IAM to represent us, we’ll tap into the organization’s enormous resources and insight, and negotiate the best possible agreement with the country’s most profitable airline. We will gain REAL power and bring it to the table during discussions about our workplace.

With IAM’s help, we will deliver due respect to our profession using the same imagination, innovation and ingenuity we use at work when we turn an impossible situation into a customer commendation! James, we can negotiate a contract that is uniquely ours, lifting our career and setting the gold standard for the industry.

IAM ready to get to work and make this happen. Sign, date, mail and self-verify your IAM card today!
