CARES Act Payroll Support Program Extension – It Matters for all of us.

Date: September 2, 2020

Over the past several months, Flight Attendants and our industry have faced an unprecedented crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our fast mobilization in March led to the passage of the CARES Act, including the aviation Payroll Support Program (PSP) to stave off involuntary furloughs and “for the continuation of employee wages, salaries, and benefits” affecting 2.1 million workers across aviation. This critical legislation has kept our industry intact, Flight Attendants and other workers connected to our healthcare, and continued service to all of our communities.  Call your Senators. Make your calls twice a day (both Senators) every day!

Senate: 888-848-4824 

Sample Script:

"Hello, I am a constituent calling to ask my Senator to help save my job as an essential worker. An overwhelming majority of bipartisan Representatives in the House sent a letter last week urging leadership to extend CARES Act Payroll Support Program for aviation workers to avoid massive job loss in October and continue service to all of our communities. I need my Senator to make sure this is done before the August recess. Keep us connected to our jobs, paychecks, & healthcare.”
