AND, talk about a spin! The 60% is NOT accurate. It is not a yes/no vote, so it is not a true statement to say that 60% voted NO. Many didn't vote. AND, true to the Bush administration's pro-####, anti-labor stances, the NMB allowed Delta to keep some names on the active list that were DECEASED.
Actually, your statement is not accurate. In NMB elections, no result positive or negative can be certified unless 50%+1 of the active f/as vote. So, not voting is voting NO. Even if every vote cast was FOR the AFA, but only 49% of the active f/as voted, the NMB could not certify the vote.
I would be very careful about making statements that you can not prove in court, such as "the NMB allowed Delta" to keep dead people on the active list. Federal government agencies can make your life very uncomfortable.
