Delta flight attendants push seniority integration

ATLANTA (AP) -- Backed by management, a group of flight attendants at Delta Air Lines who were with the carrier before it acquired Northwest Airlines want their seniority lists combined based on date of hire.

And they're pushing the union that represents Northwest flight attendants to move forward with the plan.

Delta says the group of pre-merger Delta flight attendants, who are not unionized, recently sent their proposal to the Association of Flight Attendants, which represents Northwest flight attendants.

The move comes despite the fact that AFA has sued Delta seeking to block seniority list integration until Delta's flight attendants are given the chance to vote on unionizing.

There was no immediate response from the Northwest flight attendants' union.
