ALL HANDS ON DECK! (Oct 19, 2020)

 

All Hands on Deck: #ReliefNow Action Needed

 

October 19, 2020

ALL CALL: All hands on deck for our Payroll Support Program (PSP) Extension. We have a Tuesday midnight deadline to get a full relief bill with our PSP extension before Election Day. Speaker Pelosi and Secretary Mnuchin continued talks over the weekend and confirmed that our PSP extension would be in a final package.

WATCH: AFA President Sara Nelson 10/19 Update >

Our actions have made these talks possible. Flight Attendants and aviation workers can push this across the finish line! It is critical that all Congressional offices hear from Flight Attendants calling for #ReliefNow! Not later. NOW.

Even though the Representatives and Senators are not directly in negotiations, they are the ones who tell the negotiators to get the job done. We need to be respectful, but firm and persistent in our demand for a relief bill now! 

TL;DR: Flood Congressional offices with calls and tweet and tag your representatives right now!

SENATE: 888-848-4824
HOUSE: 888-907-9365

"Hello, I am a constituent calling to tell my (Senator/Representative) that aviation workers are out of time. We need #ReliefNow -- TODAY! Furloughs have begun and more are expected. We need relief and an extension of the Payroll Support Program. Without an extension of this successful jobs and infrastructure program, the mass job loss will continue and more communities will lose air service. This is just the start. Inaction is not an option. We need a full COVID-19 relief bill to #ExtendPSP now. Thank you.”
