Delta flight attendants reject push for unionization

With more than 18,000 votes cast, Delta Air Lines flight attendants decided to reject a union organizing effort by the Association of Flight Attendants. After months of intense campaigning, the final count was 9,544 votes against unionization, 9,216 in favor. "We have said all along that we believe our direct relationship works well for our people and our company. Our flight attendants have spoken, and we are pleased that so many flight attendants agree," Delta said in a statement. Some 30,000 additional Delta workers are voting on unionization later this year, and the flight attendants' election was widely seen as a bellwether for future contests.
