The union applauded remarks this week by Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee Chairman Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W. Va.), who said in a speech this week that he did understand "how the fixation of one airline can be seen as paramount in such that the House would shut down the FAA to get its way."
“Sen. Rockefeller deserves credit for highlighting what’s at stake and, while being willing to compromise on provisions relevant to the FAA bill, refusing to bend on the unrelated union busting provision that Delta Air Lines and its Republican allies are obsessed with,” CWA Communications Director Candice Johnson said in a statement. “Delta Air Lines should re- brand itself as ‘The Official Airline of the One Percent.”
