A union representing flight attendants has filed a grievance over larger dress sizes of uniforms not being available for some workers.
Press Release – Wired PR News – Some flight attendants who worked for Northwest Airlines prior to its merger with Delta Air Lines have taken issue with Delta signature uniforms not being available in larger sizes. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the Association of Fight Attendants-CWA Northwest chapter filed a grievance seeking to have Delta’s signature red dress uniform be made available in up to size 28. The dress, designed by Richard Tyler, is currently available in up to a size 18.
Patricia Reller, who handles these types of grievances for the union is quoted by the AP as stating, “I think red is an eye-popping color and it’s not subtle, and to me by not offering it in a size over 18, Delta is saying, ‘We don’t want you wearing that if you are over size 18…But the job isn’t about being sexy. It’s about safety.”
