Wednesday, June 7, 2017
On Wednesday, June 14 (Flag Day) the Allied Pilots Association will organize a rally at the U.S Capitol in support of the proposed legislation H.R. 2150 Flags of Convenience Don’t Fly Here Act.
“Flags of convenience” models, such as Norwegian Air, threaten all U.S. airline employees, flight crews in particular, by taking advantage of substandard labor, safety and tax laws in other countries. It was “flags of convenience” schemes that destroyed the once dominant U.S. merchant marine industry. Left unchecked, these schemes will eventually cause serious damage to our industry as well.
If you are not flying and can be in Washington, D.C. next Wednesday, please join in representing APFA and showing our support for this bill and for our brothers and sisters of APA.
Please follow this link to register on Eventbrite and use the password APA for additional details.
Some highlights you will take away from the Eventbrite page:
- Limited to 300 attendees
- Round-trip coach transportation from six locations outside the DC beltway
- DC Metro for those inside the beltway
- Lunch provided, families encouraged!
- Uniform required for employees
- You must pre-register on the Eventbrite site
Additionally, there will also be an informational picket at the Providence, RI (PVD) airport on June 16. NAI will be launching their inaugural flight to Edinburgh, UK that day.
