New Delta Uniforms Cause Employees to Suffer Severe Allergic Reactions.

In May 2018, Delta Air Lines introduced new uniforms for its 64,000 employees. The uniforms, manufactured by Lands’ End, consist of “Passport Plum” dresses and “Ground Speed Graphite” suits and are made of treated fabrics to allow them to be wrinkle and stain resistant, anti-microbial, water-proof and water repellant, deodorizing, windproof, anti-static, and moisture-wicking. Unfortunately, Delta’s new look appears to be causing many to suffer significant harm.

Numerous websites are reporting that a sizable number of Delta employees wearing the new uniforms are experiencing severe allergic reactions – ranging from skin irritation to breathing problems. As reported by one news outlet, some Delta employees who have reported health issues associated with the new uniforms have been removed from service and offered a choice to quit, retire, or change to a lower paid position.
