Profit Sharing and the Re-Run Election
Many of us are deeply disturbed over management’s decision to discriminate against PMNW Flight Attendants with regard to the profit sharing. PMNW Flight Attendants were given less than half than their PMDL counterparts.
Never missing an opportunity to blame AFA, management claims AFA is the reason for this. Clearly their accusations are nonsense. Management could give all Flight Attendants the same profit sharing. But they choose not to in an effort to diminish our support for our unionizing effort. In reality, their decision to do this goes right to the heart of why we are in need of a union. Without a union, management is able to get away with discriminating against certain segments of our workforce and we are forced to accept whatever they do.
But it won’t be this way forever.
The National Mediation Board (NMB) is currently reviewing the election to determine whether or not management illegally interfered. Delta Flight Attendants have the right to an interference-free election. The NMB will make its determination at some point and we are confident a re-run election will be scheduled. Unfortunately there is no time frame for the NMB’s review of the election.
At the request of numerous Flight Attendants, AFA is reviewing all our legal options with regard to the unequal profit sharing.
Our “Personal Relationship” with Management
Remember how management said they didn’t want a union to stand in the way of each of us having a personal relationship with management? Well, how is that going for you?
Not well, according to emails from Delta Flight Attendants.
The personal relationship we are having is with our cell phones and computers and not actual humans who could provide much needed assistance. “Are you calling for human resources? Press 1. Are you calling to report a payroll problem? Press 2. "
Where did all the people go? It sure was not like that during the election. Supervisors were everywhere. No question went unanswered.
Flight Attendants are frustrated. Please share your experiences with us. Send us your story and we will add it to the ever-growing list. firstname.lastname@example.org
