First IAM election at Delta Air Lines underway - IAM Air Transport District 143

First IAM election at Delta Air Lines underway :

The National Mediation Board (NMB) yesterday mailed telephone and Internet voting instructions to nearly 100 Delta Air Lines and Northwest Airlines flight simulator technicians, opening a three week voting period in the first IAM election since Delta acquired Northwest. Pre-merger Northwest Sim Techs are IAM members, while their Delta counterparts are currently non-union. Voting will end at 2pm ET on February 25, 2010.

"Voter participation is critical in this election," said General Vice President Robert Roach, Jr. "NMB rules count any eligible voter who chooses not to participate in the elections - for whatever reason - to have voted against union representation."

Once Sim Tech voters receive their Personal Identification Number (PIN) and Voter Identification Number (VIN) from the NMB, they can vote by calling 1-877-NMB-VOTE, or visiting and clicking red link that says "Click Here to Vote in a Representation Election."
