Make Your Calls to the Senate NOW for 10 Hours Rest

Date: May 15, 2018
Type: AFA Article

The FAA Reauthorization Bill will come to the Senate floor soon for a vote.

Disappointingly, the language currently in the Senate version of the FAA Bill allows a reasonable period of 10 hours of rest to be reduced to 9 hours, to the detriment of Flight Attendant health and welfare. We must push to ensure the House language prevails because our personal health depends on this. Every Senator needs to hear from Flight Attendants over and over on this. 

Call 855-534-1774 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 – equal to that provided to our colleagues working on the flight deck of the same aircraft on which we work.

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!
