Payroll Support Program Extension Update
It is truly unbelievable that I am writing this tonight. The stress that the lack of a Payroll Support Program extension has placed on the lives of our most junior Flight Attendants is unnecessary and inexcusable.
The Payroll Support Program will not be extended tonight because Washington Leaders were not able to come to an agreement to protect aviation workers from impending layoffs. It is disheartening that we have unprecedented bipartisan support for a clean extension, yet we sit here without a path to protecting wages and healthcare for all our members.
We will continue to fight. Congress is inching closer to an agreement. Your activism has moved them to this point, now let’s push it over the finish line. Keep up the calls, emails, and tweets. We will not stop pushing until we reach an agreement.
