Delta Airlines and its pilots have come to an agreement on a new contract that will raise pay by 34%. The agreement, which was approved by the pilots, will be a four-year contract and will give pilots a raise of 34% over the span of the contract.
The agreement was made in response to a pilot shortage that has been growing in recent years, as Delta Airlines has been unable to attract enough pilots to meet the demands of its growing fleet. The pay raise is intended to help attract more pilots to the airline.
The new contract will also provide pilots with improved benefits, such as increased vacation time and better medical coverage. Additionally, the contract will include a new bonus program that will reward pilots for their performance.
The agreement is a win-win for both Delta Airlines and its pilots. The airline will be able to attract more pilots to fill its ranks and the pilots will receive a much-needed pay raise. This agreement is a testament to the power of collective bargaining and shows that when both sides are willing to compromise, they can reach an agreement that is beneficial for all.
