It isn't just Georgia. Personally, I think it is a great thing. Unions protect those that don't do their jobs and penalize those that excel in them. It is about time that everyone is accountable regardless and I think most people are fed up with unions. I hope that more follow suit!

That must be an American problem as unions in other countries are quite important as a weight to counter the corporate world which tends to exploit everyone and everything. Unions are a bit like checks and balances on the managers and CEOs.

Im sure not how many Delta flight attendants live or are based in Atlanta. There are other domiciles such as Detroit, Cincinnati, New York, Minneapolis, Memphis, Seattle, Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. Many flight attendants dont live in domicile and commute to work by cabin jumpseating. So, it is hard to say just how many of the Delta FAs are actually from and live in Georgia but it is probably a minority of flight attendants. Given this, the rejection of the union is very much more than a Georgia/southern thing. This vote included all the NW/DL flight attendants. NW was unionized and DL was not. When the merger occurred, this vote become necessary to combined the two flight attendant groups.

It is a significant step back for organized labour because of how large of an airline Delta is. It is the largest airline in the world by fleet size. Atlanta is the largest hub but the flight attendants are spread out through the system domicile wise.
