During the campaign, we published several articles that
linked directly to information that the afa found embarrassing. We
believe that the afa responded by asking the publishers of the information
to take down the sites that published it. One article that we
wrote, "A Good AFA Contract"
linked you directly to the contracts of afa staff members. Since we
were all losing benefits and pay in that economy, the afa did not want you
to know all of the perks that their staff members enjoyed.
The information is now back up. If you want to read
the contracts follow these links:

Are you a flight attendant for UAL? Have you visited
Communication Center? The Communication Center is a discussion board for UAL flight attendants
discussing issues. Sorry, access is limited to UAL flight
To try to hide the truth about the election from you, the
AFA issued a press release blasting the NMB's
Determination that Delta did not interfere in our election. Click
here to read it.
Did you actually read what was contained in the Determination?
If you did, you will see that your union is not being straight forward
Management's opening term sheet - the afa-CWA said that you would never
have to give this much. How much did management actually get?
Do you wonder what your dues payments supported up to the
2002 BOD meeting? You know that $2.50 per
month went to the Delta campaign to try to get us a contract. Click
here to see a contract that the AFA signed that really protects the
employee. Is your contract this good?
Did you read the letter that
Patricia Friend sent to you explaining her mistake at Delta? You probably have not seen the
Deltafa.org rebuttal to her letter.
This is old news, but the AFA once said that the AFA could get you a "Contract of
Choice." See what happened when deltafa.org
analyzed the last US Airways contract. This was before the US
Airways bankruptcy and pay cuts.
Patricia Friend admitted in her speech at the 2001 AFL-CIO Convention
"Over the years, Delta Airlines has maintained its union free
status by keeping its wages up near the top of the industry and
basically treating its employees well."
This begs the question, why did she spend your money on a losing Delta

The afa-CWA says that the Delta campaign was about helping the Delta Flight
Attendants. Read the article on Big
Labor. It was not about Delta flight attendants at all.
