    Guess that 60% (in the bag) "majority" wasn't so "majority" after all!

    Delta mgmt. will have a field day with this. Never mind. They already are.

    so will Boeing and Airbus and every other company where the IAM is "trying to make a push"

    Not sure where you're looking, but I found Ausband's memo to be just the opposite of a "field day."

    The C-suite's smart enough to avoid any public gloating.

    what is put in print and what is actually said are two different things.

    DL has to run an operation; they can't afford to have meltdowns among coworkers.

    and DL has not received its report from the NMB and may not even received one with the details since it is the IAM that petitioned the NMB.



    but let's be very clear that the future of any expansion of organized labor at DL is more bleak than ever.



    When the union itself has to finally admit that the level of questionable cards runs at least 2000 (10% of DL's FA workforce) there were SERIOUS problems with the application and that was apparent with complaints from FAs about their names being on cards that the IAM held.


    The IAM has been seriously damaged by this. There simply is no other way to see it.

    Those who are at DL and identified themselves as IAM supporters would be very smart to lay VERY LOW in the near future.

    one time doesn't mean anything. 
     
    Your are gloating to gloat at this point. At best, an i mean best, it might mean we go more than a few years without an FA election.

    no, it's actually about the 13th time.

    The IAM lost a number of elections as did other workgroups.


    This was just one more abortive attempt to unionized FAs and blew up worse than the others.

    A union didn't have to pull an application in any of the previous organization attempts, did they?

    they did so ONLY because the NMB told them how many fraudulent cards it found - and it had to number in the thousands.

    No amount of negative post votes or arguing otherwise is going to change that reality.

    DL isnt going to get a "report" from the NMB, nor will the IAM, A-Cards and who signed, etc are confidential.
     
    You still get the process wrong.

    It's not like ya'll weren't warned.

    Warned that the union will over promise and under deliver.

    And here we are.

    All the efforts of the activists thrown down the toilet with a failure to launch.

    I see many of the pro IAM feeling burned, as they should.

    Fool me once...

    What a hefty load of BS right there.

    So now they are blaming NMB for them withdrawing???

    What a joke.
