Union Wants Delta And Northwest To Be Treated As A Single
The International Association of
Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) Thursday took the necessary
steps to resolve representational issues for 12,700 fleet service,
flight simulator technician and plant protection employees at the
combined Delta Air Lines and Northwest Airlines. The IAM asked the
National Mediation Board (NMB) to declare that the two airlines are
operating as a single carrier with respect to those
"Any benefits from the merger between Delta and Northwest
must be shared with employees," said IAM General Vice President
Robert Roach, Jr. "The airlines' bankruptcies were extremely
difficult for employees and their families. The Machinists union
can help these workers regain what was taken in bankruptcy and
protect them as Delta navigates through a turbulent industry."
The IAM also represents Northwest's
passenger service, stock clerks and office & clerical
"As soon as we determine that the two airlines are operating as
a single carrier under NMB guidelines for other classifications,
the IAM will move to resolve their representation issues as well,"
said Roach. "It has been a long road, but I look forward to
welcoming Delta employees into the Machinists union family."
The Machinists union is the largest airline union in North
America, representing more than 110,000 airline workers, including
12,000 Northwest Airlines fleet service, customer service, office
& clerical, flight simulator technicians, stock clerks and
plant protection employees.
