Tell Delta Air Lines to Stop Union Busting

Delta Air Lines has been caught pouring tens of millions of dollars into anti-unionization efforts, producing appalling flyers encouraging employees to buy video games instead of joining a union, and maintaining a culture of intimidation through emails, videos, meetings, and signs degrading those who support unions.

Delta's major shareholder meeting on June 20th, 2024, provides CEO Ed Bastian, Vanguard Group, BlackRock, Capital World Investors, and other shareholders with an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to treating 50,000 workers with respect.

A shareholder resolution known as Proposal 5 requests that Delta Air Lines adopt a 'Non-Interference Policy' to enable workers to have freedom of association and collective bargaining.

Add your name to tell Delta shareholders to vote FOR Proposal 5.

Why is this important?
50,000 Delta Air Lines workers including ramp, cargo, and tower workers, flight attendants, and mechanics are being denied workplace representation that has been earned by pilots and flight dispatchers.

There is no way to explain this other than to say that wealthy executives and powerful shareholders do not trust or respect workers enough to provide a fair and equitable workplace for all employees.

The Association of Flight Attendants, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, and International Brotherhood of Teamsters are offering support, but it’s so important to show that the airline customers nationwide also support Proposal 5, because the ultrawealthy pay attention when their reputation and bottom line are at stake.

Supporters of Proposal 5 firmly believe that all workers deserve dignity and safety. We are fighting hard for Proposal 5 because we know that it will help us advocate for better health and safety practices, provide pathways for professional development, and establish guardrails to ensure fair, equitable, and humane treatment for all workers.

The Proposal’s opponents claim that, “Delta has always respected its employees' choice, encouraged honest, transparent, and respectful dialogue among its people, and has not suggested stifling any group or point of view.”

It's simply unbelievable knowing that Delta has been caught pouring tens of millions of dollars into anti-unionization efforts, produced appalling flyers encouraging employees to buy video games instead of joining a union, and maintains a culture of intimidation through emails, videos, meetings, and signs degrading those who support unions.

Sign the petition to demand Delta to stop union-busting. Tell the shareholders you know to vote FOR Proposal 5 (Adoption of Non-Interference Policy).

Why is this important?

Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity in the workplace. An injury to one worker, is an injury to all workers everywhere.
