12 days left for a clean PSP extention! EDD call on Oct 2 (Sep 18, 2020)
12 Days to #ExtendPSP and Save Our Jobs
September 18, 2020 — Congress has 12 days to save our jobs! Inaction is not an option and there is growing support for a full relief bill. Everyone “supports us.” True support for the American worker comes in the form of a relief bill. We need every Flight Attendant, regardless of status, to commit to Take Action every day until October 1st.
AFA to McConnell: 15 Day Deadline. Pass COVID Relief NOW.
“Congress has 15 days to act. Without a COVID relief bill that includes an extension of the Payroll Support Program (PSP), tens of thousands of aviation workers will lose their jobs on October 1, and that’s only the beginning.
“Majority Leader McConnell: The PSP enjoys overwhelming bipartisan, bicameral support. Inaction is not an option. You’ve got a simple way to prevent significant pain, but you’ve got to act now before our jobs are lost and small communities are cut off, causing more harm and more job loss.
"If Congress leaves without passing relief, tens of thousands of workers across key states will know who is responsible. We are grateful for those who have stepped up, but let me be clear: Without relief, you will not receive credit. We do not award participation trophies."

Make three calls every day. One to your Representative and two to your Senators.
"Hello, I am a constituent calling to tell my (Senator/Representative) that aviation workers need a relief package before October 1 to stop mass job loss and cuts to small airports that also hurt veterans and other Americans who count on air service to get their medicines in the mail. Both parties and the White House are on record with overwhelming support for an extension to the Payroll Support Program for essential workers and to keep service in place to small communities. But words of support won’t keep us flying or help us pay our bills. We need a COVID-19 relief package with our payroll support passed TODAY. In  days we’re out of work and millions are hurting without this relief! Keep us connected to our jobs, paychecks, & healthcare. We are counting on you. Thank you.”
