NEW YORK, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Inc (DAL.N: Quote, Profile, Research) flight attendants will file union cards for representation in the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA on Feb. 14, a union spokeswoman said on Sunday. "They want a seat at the table -- whether it is during regular contract negotiations or mergers -- so they can have a voice in their careers," said Patricia Friend, president of AFA-CWA International. The union said a "solid" majority of Delta flight attendants have signed cards seeking union representation.

The flight attendants' move comes amid media reports that Delta and Northwest Airlines Corp (NWA.N: Quote, Profile, Research) are close to a merger. Northwest's flight attendants are already represented by the AFA.

A merger would combine Delta's strong Atlanta hub and its transatlantic route network with Northwest's extensive Asia presence that includes a hub in Tokyo. (Reporting by Justin Grant; Editing by Braden Reddall)

More likely that if DL is the surviving entity the NWA FAs (and others) would find themselves without a union since DLs FAs are non-union. Similar to what happened in the DL/Western merger. The whole group would have the chance to vote the union in at a later date. This is why the AFA is pushing so hard for the DL FAs now.

What is this, like the 4th try in 15 years? This too will fail.

How could they not unionize? After watching ALPA kick A$$ and take names the last few years, who could argue with it?
