ATLANTA -- The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) says it will delay a drive to organize Delta Air Lines Inc. flight attendants after some worker authorization cards were submitted with "insufficient information or questionable signatures."
The IAM says on its website:
We were heartened by the outpouring of support for an election, as well as the sense of urgency among thousands of Flight Attendants who believed that the time to have a voice in their professional future had arrived at last. For that reason, as soon as we received what was believed to be a substantial majority of authorization cards from the Flight Attendant group we filed the cards with the National Mediation Board (NMB) in Washington, D.C., seeking an election. Unfortunately, we have recently discovered that a number of the cards submitted to us contain insufficient information or questionable signatures.
