The one, big, non-union (FA) U.S. carrier is Delta.

DL can't go too far afield on a regular basis with respect to work rules as they would quickly find themselves at a hiring disadvantage as opposed to other airlines. What I'm trying to say is that, while DL does get a bit more flexibility in some cases as a result of being non-union, they largely have effectively similar policies to other airlines (with a few notable exceptions to be sure).
I can also add that a majority of the DL employees understand that they get the benefit of reasonable treatment due to the fact that most other airlines are unionized top to bottom. I know that my DL employed relatives did when they still worked there before retiring.

Calling out fatigue is a no questions asked situation. There is no pleading with them or throwing more money at them once they say they are fatigued. Thats FAA policy, union or no union.
