DELTA PILOTS THREATEN TO FORM BREAK-AWAY UNION

A group of Delta Air Lines pilots dis-satisfied with its current union national policies is threatening to form an independent union. The group has objected to the Air Line Pilots Association labor agreement that enables the company to outsource a significant amount of its flying to the regional carriers.

Organized under the name Delta Pilots Association, the pilots’ group believes this crossover of representation for large and small carriers is a conflict of interest for ALPA, which states there is no conflict because each airline’s pilots negotiate their own contract provisions. They also said the union’s size and influence help advance the profession overall, and that includes efforts in Washington to improve federal aviation safety regulations.
