Growing As We Go With AFA
Last Friday, AFA joined us to launch an official campaign to gain our Flight Attendant Union at Delta. We had an extraordinary rollout and the response across the system and industry was amazing.
Flight Attendants came to the airport on their day off because they wanted to sign a card immediately. We are seeing extraordinary support from people who have never had a union or the chance to vote for one before.
We received support from all over the labor movement, progressive community, and specifically from the ALPA International President, and major presidential candidates.

Go to DeltaAFA.org/whole-truth to access all of the information and let's help spread the word this week on this bad claim about A-Days. No one should worry about things that just aren't true. Help us set the record straight.

CLAIM: IF WE VOTE FOR AFA, WE'LL NO LONGER HAVE A-DAYS
FACT: Only Delta Flight Attendants can decide what’s negotiated. Nothing will change unless we as Delta Flight Attendants want it to change. So let’s put this one to rest once and for all. Management’s claim just isn’t true. It’s our union and our choice as Flight Attendants to keep A-days.
