Delta Air Lines pilots casted a ballot for an arrangement that keeps away from leaves of absence through Jan. 1, 2022 in return for pay cuts, an association speaking to the pilots said Wednesday.
The 1,713 Delta pilots, who were required to be furloughed on Nov. 28, will currently get an incomplete compensation of 30 hours every month alongside health advantages and get-away accumulation, while they remain off their positions.
“I don’t think there is any better method to welcome in the Thanksgiving season than with the accomplishment of shielding every one of our pilots from leave of absence,” Delta’s head of flight activities John Laughter said in a notice routed to workers.
The carrier business has been hit hard by the Covid flare-up that carried travel to a close to stop, with Delta and different aircrafts left scrambling to reduce expenses and lift liquidity as deals plunged.
“This arrangement will assist Delta with exploring the COVID emergency and arise a more grounded aircraft eventually,” Delta MEC, a unit of the Air Line Pilots Association, said in an articulation.
