Those hired through the program are guaranteed ajob at Delta. There is just no guarantee on how long it will last.

Forgive me for being one of the "tools who have no idea" but my understanding is that even though the agreement can be canceled at any time, Delta is still obligated to honor the commitment to those who were hired while it was in effect. What would realistically prevent Delta from doing so?

DAL does not honor agreements. Ask Mesaba pilots that had a flow agreement. There may be a small handful of ETD pilots that go to DAL to give the appearance of keeping the agreement.

If you were running a large multi-national corporation, wouldn't you want a free hand in hiring key personnel?

If you believe that a billion dollar plus gross revenue corporation the size of Delta doesn't have loopholes to cancel this agreement, then I've got some ocean front property for sale in Arizona!

I've personally over the years seen pilots get flushed out of the hiring pool at majors, flow throughs cancelled to their respective major and pilots already hired brought back in for a second interview after sitting in a pool for a long time (FedEx).

The only contracts worth anything, are the CEO's contracts. Otherwise, it's not worth the paper it's printed on.

Believe what you want!

Here's the big one; The union can't protect your job at Delta while you are working at Endeavor. In other words, you could be putting your job in jeopardy at Delta if you don't want to play ball with 9E management.

Exactly. If you really want that delta job, be prepared for at least 7 to 8 years of being an endeavor b****! Step out of line just once, miscommute, call in sick too many times, have a bad day in a pc, sorry you are now no longer qualified for delta! Good luck with that.
