Re: Delta Flight Attendants Election Results
Today, February 1, 2002, the National Mediation Board (NMB) tallied ballots cast in the representation election to determine if the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) will become the collective bargaining representative for more than 19,000 flight attendants at Delta Airlines. The NMB's tally of the ballots was as follows:
On August 29, 2001, the AFA filed to represent the flight attendants at Delta Airlines. These employees were previously unrepresented. Based upon the determination that fewer than majority of eligible employees cast valid ballots in the election, the NMB will formally dismiss the application on Monday, February 4, 2002. Based on these results, the NMB will continue to investigate the AFA's pre-balloting allegations of interference by Delta.
