Unionized Delta Pilots voted for a contract that preserved last year’s Profit Sharing formula, awarded $380 million in retroactive pay, and added another $95 million in contract improvements in 2016.
As a result of the Pilots' deal, Delta's pre-tax income is $475 million lower, which directly decreases the profit sharing for Delta FAs.
The Pilots' increased compensation changed Delta’s balance sheet. That collective power is at the heart of what unions do: negotiate sweet deals in good times, and safeguard members in tough times.
Without a contract, our Profit Sharing formula was changed overnight — funding our own so-called “raise" — and our payouts were slashed 53% in Delta’s most successful year ever.
That isn't funny, Valentine.
Delta Flight Attendants have the passion and potential to negotiate our own industry leading contract in a mature relationship with our company.
