I know it sounds like a dumb question, but are there any airlines in the USA that are made up of only non-union workers? Do you think that it could ever happen - like perhaps if a new airline formed and hired all its workers? Is there a successful model anywhere of a non-union airline?

just curious...

HI!!!

Mesa, ATA, FLG?, WDY, Air midwest, F9?

There's probably more, but I can't think of any more at the moment.

That many???? FLG: I thought Pinnacle had unions, as i remember reading something recently about their pilot (?) group. I did not think that non-union employee airlines were common.

Is F9 Frontier non-union? Thats surprising because they are quite successful, and in some jobs their pay is higher than union counterparts. But those others are pretty much Regionals so if you go that route you could end up spending your whole career working RJ's or smaller.

JetBlue is non union. I don't know how long they'll stay that way. It's only about three years old. If it keeps going like it is, it can probably avoid being unionized.

Southwest and airTran are both unionized.

Legacy Carrier Delta only has one union on its property, the pilots represented by ALPA. Delta is bleeding to death, but it only has one union.

Isn't Delta non-union as well? If not them, I'm pretty sure on of the majors isn't union...

Being as big as Delta is, I'm surprised their flight attendants, mechanics, operations people aren't organized. I thought that organized labor was pretty much the standard for most airlines.

For decades Delta had a wonderful corporate culture that kept unions off the property. Delta was absolutely legendary for it's excellent treatment of its employees -- all of them. It showed, too.

Now Delta has simply become notorious. That shows, too.

Thanks for the info. The only ones I knew about were the pilots.  Smile
