A message from Sara Nelson (Feb 15, 2019)

Dear Leaders:

Our union's action was key to averting a continued shutdown. Lives and jobs were at stake and we left nothing on the table in defending our members. 

The Administration had not implemented the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 prior to the lockout, and the shutdown halted even the ability to address this. Our 10 hours, for example, is law and should already be reflected in the regulations, but it has not been implemented yet.

There are many unions eager to stand with us on our issues and they were prepared to come out with us tomorrow. Based on the discussion on our Board calls and unanimous action of the Board we had told them our actions would move forward whether we had a continued shutdown or not. However, dangerous weather expected in California and other issues - as well as the immediacy of the crisis resolved - led many to conclude it best to postpone the picket. We have advised our friends and allies that we are scaling back our pickets to three locations for tomorrow. DCA, DFW, and SEA. We will send an Interactive shortly advising members of the confirmed locations as well.

Hold on to your picket signs - we will likely need to use them in the near future.

Thank you for your immediate and focused efforts.

In Solidarity,

Sara Nelson
International President
Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO
