The Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) is attempting, for the fourth time, to become the sole representative of Delta flight attendants, who have previously rejected AFA representation in 2002, 2008, and 2010. AFA currently represents approximately 50,000 flight attendants at United, Alaska, Spirit, and other airlines. 

Every Delta employee has the right to choose or reject union representation. Delta has not only the right, but the responsibility, to make sure our flight attendants have the facts: both the benefits of what we have today, and the potential impact AFA could have on our future.

Before you decide to choose or reject AFA representation, here are some things to consider and know about Delta and AFA:

AFA Negotiations


Negotiations are not as simple or quick as AFA makes them seem.
The negotiations process can take months or years – not quite as quick as AFA likes to claim. Negotiations in the airline industry are complex and lengthy, and AFA has never negotiated a first contract for a workgroup of our size.

SINCE AFA STARTED CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS AT UNITED AIRLINES
While AFA negotiations continue with United management, the union has little progress to show.

AFA vs. Reality


AFA makes a lot of claims to build support – some of which are false or misleading.

"[At another airline] I approached flight attendants to sign cards based on the promises that I was told. When the union was voted in and we got our first tentative agreement, a lot of us felt betrayed. We had devoted so much time and energy into this card drive thinking that it would better our workgroup and make us a better airline, and it didn’t."
