    The head of the largest flight-attendant union in the US explains why Delta's cabin crews might finally vote to unionize
    The country's largest cabin crew union, the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA), announced that it is starting a membership drive in an effort to organize Delta's 25,000 flight attendants.

    The drive comes as Delta has reported strong performance over multiple quarters, and as the airline says it plans to hire 12,000 new employees by 2020, including at least 1,000 flight attendants.

    Delta flight attendants previously voted against unionizing in 2002, 2008, and 2010. But Sara Nelson, president of the AFA, says she believes the current economic and social landscape will lead to a different outcome this time.

    "A lot has changed since 2010," she told Business Insider. "More than 40% of the flight attendant workforce has been newly hired since then."
    Additionally, the context was different then. After the 2008 election, a rule under the Railway Labor Act that counted any uncast vote in a union election as a "no" was changed, so that the elections would only count votes that were actually cast.

    Air crew told ‘don‘t unionise, buy video games‘

    Delta Airlines is facing significant criticism after posters discouraging its staff from joining a union were widely shared online.

    “Union dues cost around $700 [£540] a year,” one of the posters states.

    “A new video game system with the latest hits sounds like fun. Put your money towards that instead of paying dues to the union,” it continued.

    The posters point to a website featuring Delta branding which encourages workers not to unionise.

    Without confirming it produced the posters, a spokesperson for the airline said it had “shared many communications, which on the whole make clear that deciding whether or not to unionise should not be taken lightly.”

    The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), which claims to represent more than 110,000 airline employees in the United States, is attempting to organise union representation for 44,000 Delta employees.

    “Delta Airlines‘ all-out assault on their employees‘ legally-protected right to unionise with the Machinists Union is confirmation that our campaign to bring the benefits of IAM-representation is succeeding,” it said in a statement.
