On Wednesday, August 14, 2019, one of our ramp colleagues was killed in a tragic accident on the JFK ramp.

The Delta Employee Union Organizing Committee and the IAM express deepest condolences and support to the family, friends and co-workers of Mr. Mohammed.

It is often forgotten in the pressure to perform our duties, that ramp is exceedingly dangerous work.

In the days to come, more information will come out as to the cause.

While we all await the details—Please work safe. Call a time out if you feel unsafe and watch each other’s backs.
