Delta Action Could Delay Elections

Delta Air Lines today joined the Air Transport Association (ATA) in appealing a federal judge’s ruling denying their bid to overturn a fair election process in union representation elections.

“Delta is trying to distract its employees and the Machinists Union with baseless legal challenges,” said IAM Transportation General Vice President Robert Roach, Jr. “This further demonstrates what the judge in the initial case acknowledged – that Delta is delaying the election process. Delta workers are ready to vote. I call on Delta Air Lines to let them do so.”

The IAM remains prepared to go forward with elections for the Fleet Service and Passenger Service classifications. Click here for the latest developments.
