I dont think that would be legal, IMO... If DL
did really do this, the union would go berserk probably.
They would need to have very, very good grounds for termination. Now if the voluntary UNPAID leaves of absence were 'offered' to the F/As, then it would be illegal termination, but if a F/A took an leave of absence on their own with management approval, then that would probably be different.
But in reality, I dont think DL
has fired anyone so its got to be a stupid rumor to get the DL
employees and unions on the edge. BTW, sources helps alot too.
