Flight Attendants at Delta Airlines, organizing with AFA-CWA, are fighting to hold the airline to its promise to provide new, safe uniforms. In 2018, Delta rolled out a new uniform line. Within weeks, Flight Attendants began reporting severe, adverse reactions like trouble breathing, extreme headaches, painful rashes, and hair loss. An independent lab test showed the uniforms had high levels of a toxic chemical.
After Flight Attendants spoke out, Delta promised "a completely new uniform program" and allowed workers to wear an alternative black and white uniform (a common fix across the industry in situations like this). But now management is backtracking on their promise and the workers are being forced to wear a uniform they don't feel safe in, or stay home without a paycheck. Click here to send a letter to CEO Ed Bastian and Delta management demanding that they live up to their promise to provide a new uniform that is safe and healthy for all workers, and in the interim, allow workers to continue wearing alternative uniforms without penalty.
