Delta Air Lines Inc. confirmed Thursday that it’s behind a widely criticized poster suggesting that nonunion employees buy video games rather than spend their money on union dues.

The poster, which was tweeted earlier Thursday by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, or IAM, is part of Delta’s “Don’t Risk It, Don’t Sign It” campaign to persuade thousands of flight attendants and ramp and cargo agents not to sign a card authorizing an election to join the IAM.

Pilots are the only large classification of Delta employees who are unionized.

A spokeswoman for Delta confirmed that the poster — which includes a generic depiction of a video game controller and suggests that employees “put your money towards that instead of paying dues to the union” — is real.
