Before all of you Delta-bash your way to the point of no return, please understand that the original post in this thread is extremely misleading.
The Delta ALPA strike ballot was authorized several weeks ago, and the vote was taken several weeks ago. This was just the set date to announce the results.
THIS DOES NOT GUARANTEE A STRIKE.
The only thing Delta pilots said with this vote is that they authorize Delta ALPA MEC to call a strike in the event negotiations fail.
By all accounts, great progress has been made on negotiations, and the probability of settlement appears to be getting greater as time goes on.
So relax, boys....
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.
