It’s Not Over - CALL NOW ! 10 Hours Rest

Date: June 12, 2018
Type: AFA Article

Today over 80 Flight Attendants lobbied on Capitol Hill for lawmakers to support our guaranteed 10 Hour non-reducible rest periods. OUR FIGHT IS NOT OVER YET!

Call 855-534-1774 to tell your Senators to maintain the House language of 10 Hours non-reducible 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!

Our Senators need to hear from us every day. CALL NOW and after you make your call, text a flying partner and ask her/him to call. We need every Flight Attendant to weigh in to make our 10 hours rest a reality. 

The House FAA Reauthorization Bill has our 10 Hours in it. The Senate bill allows management to reduce to 9 hours, and several airlines are working hard to keep it that way. Fatigue studies show we are fatigued - and more rest is needed! Equal rest with the flight deck is the bare minimum, but they are fighting even that! Stand up, fight back and hold our elected representatives accountable for our safety, health and equality!
