    After 9/11 , after 28 years of flying, I took a one year leave of absence to help out our junior flight attendants so they would not be furloughed as senior flight attendants had done for me in 1973 with the Arab oil embargo. I was told on Oct. 19, 2002 , that unfortunately , they could not bring me back at this time . I told them it was illegal, that many laws were being broken and that I would sue.

    I did sue, I filed a class action suit as well as an age discrimination lawsuit

    Mary Mallon-Chavez vs Delta Airlines

    I thankfully had the help of many wonderful people ( lawyers their staff and even some of our Delta Staff) who were helpful in providing names of hundreds of flight attendants that took those leaves . This story is completely true, check the facts. When we were recalled in 2004 , I very happily wrote thousands of dollars
    in checks to the attorneys handling this case. I would publicly like to thank Linda Krieger esq.( Krieger and Krieger / Long Beach, California ) for handling the labor issues and Mr. Patrick Carreon ( Mower Carreon and Desai / Orange, California ) for handling the Class actinide of this suit.

    I hope that flight Attendants realize what Not having a union has cost them.

      Mary, you are, quite simply, a heroine! Preach, sister! Why can’t people see the way things really are and ask for what’s right? That doesn’t make us less proud to do what we do or work where we work!
      I hope yet another poorly managed summer operation, as well as the droves of new hires leaving the company will turn the tide in favor of fair representation!

        It’s on days of irregular operations that we NEED a contract with CLEAR work rules. We have nothing to fall back on they they just abuse you any way they see fit. This happens EVERY SINGLE time of IROPS. I hope this time around flight attendants really see the need to have a contract where they just can’t bend the rules any way they want

          I agree. As a 28 year flight attendant, I was rerouted in ATL and the ADAY person who was legal for the reroute was sent home. I called scheduling and they told me they were in IROPS and it was obvious they did not care that they were ignoring the rules. I also told them they were negating seniority. Again, they did not care. Once again in ATL this past summer, they piggybacked me at 29 years. I find it hard to believe there was not one person junior to me flying thorough ATL that day who could have done this reroute. They pick and choose at their convenience because we are just warm bodies filling a void that they have.

    Glad to here you stood up for yourself many original Delta F/A’s don’t. Glad you came back don’t know if I would, would just take their money and run. So done now have lots of anonymosity toward the management and company the way the handled lots of things after 911 .Those are not the reasons I keep signing cards. Their “generous” offers for early retirement are ridiculous last one was $23000 for my 29 years of service, wouldn’t even pay off my car after taxes and with a miniscule pension of maybe $600 before SS offset it is an insult. even now they encourage employees not to press charges against passengers who physically accost flight attendants, try to find reasons not to pay for OJI’s. There are still so many out there that feel that as long as there is a threat of union everything is O.K. but they look at it as just about money. They don’t see the big picture that it also protects you if they try to use a lame excuse to terminate your employment because you don’t agree and choose to stand up for yourself and they break labor practices.

    I was just recently let go due to issues brought about due to depression which I was just diagnosed with. But, they don’t seem to care.

      Thanks! We are making progress and when at least 50% of all DL FAs sign their cards, we will have the right to request a vote be held. Please tell all your co-workers to get their cards in so we can vote! Thanks again!

    I am so disgusted that my dream job that allowed me flexibility, enjoyment, certability, safety, financial stability has all but disappeared. This every other Friday new pay system has screwed up my bill payments and due dates as well. Sick of long domestic duty days, long sits, and short crew layovers. It’s become just WORK!
