“Think PINK” - October is Breast Cancer Awareness

Date: October 6, 2017
Type: AFA Article

       

Every October, in an effort to raise awareness of the importance of prevention, all United Airlines employees are able to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing company approved pink uniform accessories such as a 
PINK ribbon behind your official AFA pin. Pink Ribbons will be available from your Local Union Representatives during the month of October. 

United’s Inflight Services has designated a pink scarf for females and a pink tie for males as the approved uniform items for Flight Attendants. You may also wear approved items purchased in previous years to show your continuing support of United’s Pink Program. These accessories can be worn while on duty from October 1 through October 31.   For additional information please see American Cancer Society recommendations for early breast cancer detection in women without breast symptoms.
