Breast Cancer Awareness –Wear Pink during the Month of October!

Date: October 17, 2018

Every October, in an effort to raise awareness of the importance of prevention, all United Airlines employees are able to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness by wearing pink. Our AFA history has us wearing pink ribbons behind our official AFA pin as we have done since the very inception of AFA’s involvement in this initiative to raise awareness.

In more recent years, the company has approved other uniform accessories that are pink in color and are designed for each work group, the Pink Program.  You may wear approved items purchased in previous years.  Accessories can be worn while on duty from October 1 through October 31. Flight Attendants are encouraged to pick up a ribbon from their Local Council representatives.

Together, we have a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of prevention in battling this disease. We encourage everyone to participate in this effort by displaying a pink ribbon behind your official AFA pin. Together, we can accomplish great things!
