10 Hours Rest Is Law: Implement Now
November 27, 2019
MEC Government Affairs Committee
Our efforts to secure 10 hours minimum rest under the law was successful in October 2018—closing a safety, health, and equality loophole in aviation. But the DOT and FAA have not yet forced the airlines to comply with the law.
In September, AFA testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on this. On Tuesday, November 15, we filed comments on why a rulemaking is not necessary for implementation. We were joined by the Teamsters in filing our comments on the federal register.Both the testimony and comments may be viewed here >
