Delta flight simulator technicians reject union representation

Delta Air Lines today received notification from the National Mediation Board (NMB) that a majority of eligible flight simulator technicians rejected union representation by the International Association of Machinists (IAM).

“Our flight simulator technicians have made a decisive choice not to have IAM representation,” said Mike Campbell, Delta’s executive vice president of Human Resources and Labor Relations. “We take our responsibility to do right by our people very seriously and we’ll continue to do everything we can to make Delta a great place to work.”

“It’s now time for the IAM to move forward to allow our employees in other workgroups the same opportunity to express their individual choice about union representation.”

Ninety-one flight simulator technicians were eligible to vote in this election. Of those, only 40 voted in favor of IAM representation.
