Call the Senate for 10 Hours Rest and Not a Minute Less!

Yesterday, Politico reported that Senate leadership is bringing the FAA bill to the Senate floor... soon. There is no definitive timeframe, but this means that the bill could move at any time.

Remember, the language currently in the Senate version of the FAA Bill allows 10 hours to be reduced to 9. We must push to ensure the House language prevails. Every Senator needs to hear from Flight Attendants over and over on this. Make plans to call every single day until our 10 hours non-reducible rest is law.

Call 855-534-1774 NOW to tell your Senators to maintain the House language of 10 Hours Rest for Flight Attendants in the FAA Reauthorization Bill. We need equal 10 hours minimum rest with the flight deck and not a minute less.

After you make your call, text a flying partner and tell them to call. We need every Flight Attendant to weigh in with their Senators to make our 10 hours rest a reality.  We can do this!
