Did Delta Break Its Promise to Minnesota Workers?


Delta is rerouting its personnel. The airline announced on June 7 that it plans to send several hundred jobs from its Minnesota-St.Paul hub to its headquarters in Atlanta.

The relocations are to begin this year and will proceed through 2012. The moves stem from Delta's buyout of Northwest Airlines in 2008. The deal, which made Delta the world's largest airline, was made on the condition that CEO Richard Anderson would keep jobs, including employees working in technical support in Minnesota.
