TAKE ACTION TODAY: Tell Congress to Extend the CARES Act Payroll Support Program

Date: July 7, 2020


MEC Government Affairs Committee

We are calling for a six-month aviation Payroll Support Program extension through March 31, 2021, to protect our jobs, extend the restrictions on stock buybacks, dividends, and executive compensation, and maintain service to all our communities. All of aviation labor is standing together to call on Congress to pass a clean extension of the Payroll Support Program before their summer recess at the end of July. Waiting until September for this action is too late because October planning will be done and hundreds of thousands of workers will already be told they are out of work.

We Need Urgent Action Now!
