Delta Connection FAs Request Release To Strike

Negotiations With Compass Airlines Reportedly Reach Stalemate

Compass Airlines flight attendants have requested a proffer of arbitration from the National Mediation Board (NMB), indicating willingness to strike should management fail to negotiate a new agreement for the airline's nearly 450 flight attendants. If the NMB grants AFA's request and agrees that management has refused to make significant movement, then negotiations will be declared deadlocked and both parties will be released into a 30-day "cooling off" period leading to a strike deadline.

"Compass flight attendants remain focused on reaching an agreement that provides fair wages, working conditions and benefits. Management's unwillingness to engage in productive negotiations leading to an acceptable tentative agreement is self-evident, and we are asking the NMB to hold them accountable for their lack of action," said Catriona Bagley, AFA Compass President.

Compass, a Delta Connection carrier, provides approximately 190 daily flights to over 50 Delta Air Lines destinations.  Compass Airlines is wholly owned by Trans States Holdings of St. Louis and is headquartered in Minneapolis.

"Compass flight attendants are determined to reach an agreement. We are committed to the success of our airline and our contributions continue to make the company a top-of-the-industry performer. If management continues to choose obstruction over cooperation, then they should be prepared for CHAOS."

CHAOS, or Create Havoc Around Our System, is AFA's trademarked strike strategy. With CHAOS, a strike could affect the entire system or a single flight. The union decides when, where and how to strike without notice to management or passengers. Throughout negotiations, AFA has continued to address Flight Attendant concerns while management has consistently made proposals that are below industry standards.
