Efforts on Payroll Support Program Continue
October 24, 2020
Flight Attendants in the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Denver, and Houston turned out for #ReliefNow events over the last week.
During this past week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the White House's chief negotiator have continued to pursue a stimulus package and Payroll Support Program. It’s been a long, difficult week and we aren’t giving up in our efforts to get the job done!
Stay strong, check in on each other, and take care of yourself. We are stronger together and better together.
"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.”
