Delta Pilot Union Leaders Approve Tentative Labor Deal

Leaders of Delta Air Lines Inc's pilot union approved a tentative labor deal that provides for base pay increases and a revision in the airline's profit sharing formula.
The Delta Master Executive Council (MEC), a unit of the Air Line Pilots Association, will present the tentative agreement to pilots for a ratification vote. If pilots vote for it, the agreement will have an amendable date of Dec. 31, 2018, Delta said late Wednesday.
If the deal is ratified, Delta will have a new contract about six months before it can officially be amended on Dec. 31. In contrast, union deals at other U.S. airlines took multiple years to reach.
