Delta Air Lines Inc. flight attendants have again
failed to get the necessary votes to form a union.
The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA said in a statement
today that not enough of the eligible flight attendants voted.
Therefore the results did not meet the certification requirements
of the National Mediation Board despite showing solid support from
those people who did vote.
Federal rules require a majority turnout by those eligible to
vote.
A similar effort in late 2001 was rejected in election results
announced on Feb. 1, 2002.
Delta flight attendants could get another shot at unionization
after the completion of the carrier's acquisition of Eagan,
Minn.-based Northwest Airlines Corp.
