The machinists union and a group of U.S. senators including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are accusing Delta Air Lines Inc. of foul play in the struggle over whether 40,000 of its employees will unionize.

“Delta’s unlawful campaign has included disciplining and firing union activists, destroying union campaign materials, changing company policies to further frustrate unionization, and cornering employees in one-on-one meetings to interrogate them and attempt to influence their actions,” the unions’ attorneys allege in their filing.

Nine U.S. senators, led by Sanders and including fellow presidential candidate Warren, weighed in Wednesday on the union’s behalf. The group sent Delta Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian a letter accusing the company of “bombarding employees with anti-union propaganda” and of directing management “to actively interfere with the efforts of your workers to decide this question for themselves.”

“Your attempts to deny the right of Delta workers to form a union is corporate greed, plain and simple,” they wrote. A 10th senator, Patty Murray, the ranking Democrat of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, said Wednesday that her staff had met with Delta about its anti-union campaign, and that she was disappointed the company wouldn’t agree to alter its tactics.
