Save Our Jobs – Extend the Payroll Support Program NOW!

We are fighting for our jobs, and it will take all of us to get this done. We won’t let up until the Payroll Support Program is extended, but we must keep pushing our elected leaders to pass a stimulus bill. Time is running out, but the fight is far from over. Congress and the White House overwhelmingly support an extension of the Payroll Support Program; we have to push it over the finish line. We can—we will—get this done.

Here are daily actions you can contribute every day this week. These are actions that anyone can take from home or a layover. There are also some opportunities to show up in person. This is for your job and the jobs of so many others. Make your contribution.

EVERY DAY
Call & Write to your Senators & Representatives

Happy Labor Day

Today, we celebrate American workers for the important contributions that workers like us have made to our country’s strength, prosperity, and well-being. There is power in a Union. Today, we unite to save our jobs.

Example script for your calls, emails, and letters:

My name is ______, and I am an American Airlines Flight Attendant who has been flying for __ years. Without a stimulus bill, aviation workers like me will lose our jobs on October 1st.

US aviation workers cannot wait any longer. We need you to negotiate a stimulus bill NOW. Without it, 75,000 workers will be furloughed on October 1st. Congress and the White House understand the importance of a clean extension of the aviation Payroll Support Program, but they must reach a deal on the next relief package. Please don’t let my job disappear.

Thank you for supporting aviation workers.
