As workers in an industry that is heavily regulated by the federal government, decisions that affect Flight Attendants’ daily lives and working conditions are often made in the Halls of Congress and by federal agencies. The President will appoint those who oversee the agencies governing our industry.

It is our responsibility to carefully consider for whom we will vote and how those individuals will represent Flight Attendant interests.

For these reasons and many others, it is imperative we have friends in the White House and Congress that understand our unique workplace and recognize our role as First Responders and the last line of defense onboard the aircraft. They must also be willing to stand up and fight together with us. To be clear, we are not talking about supporting candidates based on political party, but rather we vigorously support candidates who are on the record supporting Flight Attendant issues.

The first, and perhaps most critical step in participating in the upcoming elections is to ensure you are registered to vote. Flight Attendants may register to vote on-line. For our Flight Attendants who reside overseas, you’ll have access to download the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). The FPCA is a voter registration and absentee request application allowing U.S. citizens who reside overseas to vote in the election. These post cards are readily available online.

We encourage everyone to register and become educated and informed on which candidates support Flight Attendant issues.

Through our solidarity, we will unite behind the issues that are important to Flight Attendants and make certain our quality of life is maintained. We must vote for officials who share our values and our vision for the future in order to put in place legislation that supports working families and Flight Attendants.

We encourage everyone to register to vote (or verify that your voter registration is up-to-date), become educated and informed on which candidates support Flight Attendant issues.
