Congressional Labor Caucus Urges Delta Air Lines to Respect Employees’ Right to Organize

This week, Congressional Labor Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-MI), Donald Norcross (D-NJ), and Mark Pocan (D-WI) led a letter with Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and over 150 bipartisan Members of Congress urged Delta Air Lines to adopt a neutrality agreement towards on efforts by Flight Attendants, Fleet Service, and Mechanics to form a union.

“All workers should have the free and fair choice to join a union, as is required by law. We strongly urge you to adopt a neutrality agreement with regards to any efforts by your employees to unionize and to commit to negotiating in good faith if your employees do choose to form a union,” the Members wrote in a letter to Delta CEO Ed Bastian.

Delta employees, including Flight Attendants with our union, fleet service workers with the IAM, and technicians with the Teamsters, have been actively working to form a union. The airlines’ resistance to unionization efforts has sparked concerns about workers’ rights and fair labor practices.

“The RLA says workers have the free choice to decide for themselves. But enforcement of the law is essentially nonexistent. That’s why it’s so important that lawmakers stand up for their constituents’ rights and that’s exactly what 147 House members did in signing this letter,” said Sara Nelson, AFA-CWA International President. “Huge thanks to the leadership of the Labor Caucus! Delta is on notice now with clear expectations to remain neutral in union organizing.”
