Our Fight Continues – Extend the PSP Now

We have sent thousands of messages and made thousands of calls—and the progress shows. The House, the Senate, and the White House have all signaled their support for extending the aviation Payroll Support Program. However, for this six-month extension to pass, we must make sure it is included in the upcoming COVID-19 relief package. Negotiations have been taking place for over a week and will likely continue into the coming days.

Your calls are continuing to make a major difference. Tell your Senators we need an extension of the PSP to be included in next week’s stimulus bill. All 100 Senators need to hear from you. Timing is critical for us. As October nears closer, your elected representatives must understand how vital this program is to you and hundreds of thousands of US aviation workers. Their influence will help gain the support of those who have not yet weighed in on this critical issue.

Two calls every day. Ask your friends and family to join us in this fight. We can do this.

Example call script:

“Hello, I am a Flight Attendant and a constituent calling to ask my Senator to save my job and thousands of other aviation jobs. A majority of Representatives in the House, from both sides of the aisle, support an extension of the CARES Act aviation Payroll Support Program. This program has been my lifeline, but if Congress does not extend it now, hundreds of thousands of aviation workers will likely lose their jobs in October. Timing is critical. This has to be negotiated and passed before the August recess to avoid the October layoffs. Please support a clean extension of the aviation Payroll Support Program and ensure it is part of the negotiations. I am counting on you.”
