DIGNITY. SECURITY. RESPECT. FAIRNESS.
A UNION CONTRACT PROVIDES YOU FLEXIBILITY PLUS PAY PROGRESSION

WHY WE NEED A UNION
- EQUALITY IN PAY AND BENEFITS FOR ALL READY RESERVE EMPLOYEES.
- PROTECTION AGAINST SHORT STAFFING, AND UNFAIR DISCIPLINE FOR ALL WORKERS.
- A DEFINED PENSION FOR FINANCIAL SECURITY IN RETIREMENT.
- JOB SECURITY BY PROTECTING AGAINST OUTSOURCING.
HOW READY RESERVES CAN VOTE FOR REAL CHANGE
ARE YOU THINKING THAT THE READY RESERVE PROGRAM NEEDS A LOT MORE THAN JUST A NAME CHANGE?
- Put Ready Reserves on an equal pay scale as permanent employees
- Make Health Insurance available for Ready Reserves
- Give Ready Reserve paid vacations
- Eliminate the yearly maximum cap on hours worked
- Give Ready Reserves the same 401k match as permanent employees
All of this and more is possible if ramp, cargo, and tower employees form a union.
The part-time employees at United, American and Southwest already enjoy these benefits and more, because they have a union.
TOGETHER WE CAN RIGHT THE WRONGS
Ready Reserves at Delta Airlines are just as hard working as their permanent counterparts. Every day they endure the same hazards, and physical and financial demands equal to every permanent benefited worker.
Yet Delta, which in 2016 had net profits $2 billion more than their next closest competitor American Airlines, continues to treat their Ready Reserves like second class citizens. Ironically, one of the big reasons Delta’s profits are so high is due to the unequal wages and benefits paid Ready Reserve employees. United Airlines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines workers are part of a union, and no such inequality exists for newer or part time employees. Look at the difference being part of a union can make:
By forming a union at Delta Airlines, ramp, cargo and tower workers can fight together to correct the gross injustices that Ready Reserve workers currently endure each and every day. Together WE CAN bring about these changes:
DELTA PROFITS SOAR. WHY DID YOUR SHARE GET SMALLER?
Delta justifies this with, “You get less profit sharing in exchange for guaranteed money in your hourly wage.”
The truth is you can have both. Just ask the pilots. They received both a high profit sharing formula and an industry leading wage. Why? They have a union.
More truth, if Delta is to keep our wages in line with the industry average they had to give us a raise. But, with the cut we all took based on the new profit sharing formula—you were forced to finance your own raise. Delta’s slogan is “Still Climbing”, but here are the things that are really climbing…

DELTA AIRLINES — THE INDUSTRY LEADER?
WHEN IT COMES TO WAGES, BENEFITS, AND FAIR TREATMENT TOWARDS THEIR EMPLOYEES THEY ARE FAR FROM THE INDUSTRY LEADER
In 2016, Delta Airlines was the industry leader with $4.4 billion in net profits. Followed by American Airlines with $2.7 billion and United Airlines with $2.3 billion in net profits for the year.
The Wall Street Journal recently rated all airlines in eight performance categories. Delta ranked #1 for airlines our size. (They ranked #2 overall behind Alaskan Airlines). United Airlines ranked #5 and American Airlines finished #9 among the big three.
But, when it comes to wages, benefits, and fair treatment towards their employees Delta Airlines is far from the Industry leader….
