  3. Delta Airlines is worth billions of dollars. But it’s actively fighting its employees who want to join a union and negotiate for better wages, telling them to buy video games instead.

    Join Bernie Sanders and tell Delta to stop trying to undercut workers’ right to form a union and negotiate for better wages.

    Linda:

    Delta Airlines is a multi-billion dollar company whose CEO made nearly $22 million in 2017.

    Yet the company’s ramp agents — like the people who you see out of the plane window helping load and unload airplanes — make as little as $9 an hour.

    Nine dollars an hour is not a livable wage. It makes sense that Delta employees have decided to join together to form a union, so they can bargain together for better wages, benefits, and working conditions.

    Well, Delta doesn’t like that. In fact, they told their employees to buy video games instead of forming a union. Really. This is their poster:

    What a disgrace. A company that can pay its CEO nearly $22 million can certainly afford to treat its workers better.

    Bernie Sanders is standing with Delta workers who want to exercise their right to form a union. Will you join him in calling on Delta to stop trying to undercut workers’ right to form a union and negotiate for better wages?

    Add your name to join Bernie Sanders and tell Delta to let its workers form a union and negotiate for better wages.

    SIGN THE PETITION

    When Bernie talks about the need to rebuild the American labor movement and to make it easier, not harder, to join a union, he means it. And we mean it on our campaign, too.

    Bernie 2020 is the first-ever major presidential campaign to negotiate a contract with its workers’ union. We’re proud of that fact, and we hope other campaigns follow suit.

    The right to organize as part of a union has historically been one of the surest ways for American workers to join the middle class.

    There are many reasons for the growing inequality in our economy, but perhaps the most significant reason for the disappearing middle class is that the rights of workers to join together and collectively bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions have been severely undermined.

    That is why it is such a disgrace for Delta to make its CEO a multi-millionaire while actively fighting its employees’ rights to form and join a union and to negotiate for better wages. Telling its employees to buy video games instead of joining a union is insulting to the workers, and to the idea that people should be able to make a living wage in this country.

    Will you call on Delta to let its workers form a union and negotiate for better wages?

    Sign Bernie’s petition to Delta Airlines.

    Thank you for standing up for working people.

    In solidarity,
    Faiz Shakir
