I AM ready to have a voice and to be able to enjoy my job again.
I AM ready to put my foot down on the issues that matter most to me.
I have read endless stories about why we need a union. I’ve been through endless reroutes and IROPs where I am abused and completely knocked out by the end of an extended duty day.
I AM ready for new hires to not be scared of coming out of training because while in training they were bullied to believe certain things.
I AM ready for everyone to have the same rules that we all must follow; managers, flight attendants, scheduling.... EVERYONE.
I want THE IAM because when I came out of training I almost lost my job to a disability that I had previously disclosed with DL prior to them hiring me.
I want THE IAM because for the first year that I was on the line I didn’t have anyone who had my back during my treatments and endless doctors' appointments. These appointments were made months in advance and I could not reschedule. I was told good luck, get someone to pick them up or swap your days.
How do you want me to do that when we are scheduled 85 hours or more?
How can I give a trip away when we are all overworked with no rest? We do not receive concern or care from the higher-ups.
Cancer doesn’t just stop because you couldn’t give your trip away.
I want a Voice.
I want to feel Safe in a career I chose and love dearly.
I AM ready for DL to be different.
I AM ready for us to all be one.
I AM READY!
