Delta Flight Attendants Vote Not To Unionize
STEVE INSKEEP, Host:
But as NPR's Jim Zarroli reports, other employees at the airline will also vote soon on whether to join unions.
JIM ZARROLI: Nelson Lichtenstein, a professor of history at the University of California at Santa Barbara, says other employee groups are voting whether to unionize in coming weeks. And if they succeed, it could raise support for a union at Delta.
D: If the machinists and the ground personnel vote in favor of the union in the next election, then a couple of years down the line, the flight attendants may have another election, and they would join. That's happened in the past.
