Release #: DAL 15.02
Date: June 04, 2015

ATLANTA, Ga. --- This morning, the Negotiating Committee for the pilots of Delta Air Lines, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int'l (ALPA), reached a tentative agreement with Delta management on an amended collective bargaining agreement, over six months ahead of the December 31, 2015 amendable date.

In a letter to the Delta pilots, Delta Master Executive Council (MEC) Chairman Captain Mike Donatelli wrote, "This agreement represents the culmination of tremendous effort on your behalf. We have been engaged in negotiation preparation and execution for a full year, with incredible dedication from our negotiators, professional staff, subject matter experts and your elected representatives.

As a function of process within the Delta MEC Policy Manual, your elected representatives will now have TA language in their possession for seven days. We will meet, and if they approve the agreement, it will be made available to the Delta pilots for membership ratification."

The tentative agreement is in the hands of the Delta MEC, the union's governing body, for consideration. Until that process is complete, the details of the tentative agreement will not be publically released.
