Delta to Shut Down Comair

“Our Comair mechanics are all veteran employees. They care about this airline,” said IAM District 142 General Chairman Jim Samuel. “Delta should recognize that Comair is a quality carrier and its employees deserve to be treated better.”

“Instead of utilizing its own feeder carrier, Delta chose to cannibalize itself in its continual cost-cutting pursuit,” said President of District 142 Tom Higginbotham. “With Delta, it’s not about people; it’s about padding their profit margins.”

IAM District 142 has vowed to push for severance, job opportunities, flight benefits and reimbursement of unused vacation and sick leave. Comair IAM members will also have access to the IAM’s Community and Members Service Committees to provide transition assistance.
