Washington, D.C. 20572
In the Matter of the
REPRESENTATION OF EMPLOYEES
DELTA AIRLINES, INC.
Fleet Service Employees
25 NMB No. 29
CASE NO. R-6547
SHOWING OF INTEREST
December 9, 1997
The services of the National Mediation Board were invoked by the Transport Workers Union of America, on September 16, 1997, to investigate and determine who may represent for the purposes of the Railway Labor Act, as provided by Section 2, Ninth, thereof, personnel described as "Fleet Service Employees", employees of the Delta Airlines, Inc.
At the time this application was received, these employees were not represented by any organization or individual.
The Board assigned Mediator Lawrence Gibbons and Board Representative Eileen Hennessey to investigate.
The Mediator's investigation established that the organization had failed to support its application with the required number of authorizations from the employees in the craft or class as set forth in Part 1206.2(a) of the National Mediation Board Rules.
Therefore, the Board finds no basis upon which to proceed in this matter and the application is hereby dismissed subject to Part 1206.4 of he NMB's Rules.
By direction of the NATIONAL MEDIATION BOARD.
Stephen E. Crable
Chief of Staff
