I find the whole notion of 'corporations throwing propaganda out and that being the only reason DL FAs aren't unionized' insulting. Of course DL is gonna spin it their way (the unions do too, just look at any press release they put out with their overly dramatic language) but the FAs aren't stupid. They know DL is gonna spin it, if they don't vote in a union, it's largely their informed choice.
Their choice. Which brings us to this... The whole back and forth between IAM and AFA is looking petty and again, like they only care about winning more members.
Best of luck to the DL FAs. IAM seems like a soup sandwich, maybe they can give AFA a try after IAM's million year exclusivity period. If they vote in the union, hopefully they can gain protections but preserve a good relation with management.
If they don't unionize, I hope posters here are less condescending and realize that many FAs just don't want it (not because they're dumb and just listening to DL or their husbands, geez.) There isn't some complex reason, not everyone wants to be unionized
You sensible analysis and logical presentation is totally out of place in this mud-wrestling contest.

And, interestingly, the most prolific poster on this thread appears to have joined A.net only two months ago - apparently just to shill for the IAM.
