APFA’s Executive Committee Unanimously Passes
Resolution Endorsing Joe Biden

Today, APFA endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States. The unanimous resolution by APFA’s Executive Committee solidifies a commitment to the overall Labor movement. The resolution reads as follows:

APFA’s endorsement of Vice President Biden is a commitment to our overall goal of electing labor-friendly, pro-Union candidates both in Washington, D.C., and in communities throughout the United States,” said APFA National President Julie Hedrick.” Vice President Biden supports employees’ right to organize, and he will uphold and respect collective bargaining rights. He shares our view that increased unionization across the country will strengthen the Labor movement and the middle class across America.”

Hedrick further explained, “In these unprecedented times, we have seen firsthand what solidarity and unity within the Labor movement can produce. For example, the aviation Payroll Support Program within the CARES Act kept workers connected to pay and healthcare in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. But we are not finished. We will collectively work with our Union sisters and brothers across the industry and the country to continue fighting to keep all our members on the job as we move closer to a vaccine. Vice President Biden shares our concerns for the future.”

It is important to note that it is APFA’s policy that Union dues are never used for political purposes. APFA uses members’ voluntary donations to the APFA Political Action Committee (PAC) to support candidates from all political parties who support Flight Attendant issues.

It is APFA’s responsibility to evaluate how candidates’ positions affect the Flight Attendant profession. We support both Democrats and Republicans, but it should be noted that over the years, the Democratic Party has more often supported Union issues that have benefited working women and men.

As always, your vote is a personal choice. You decide how much your profession influences your vote. Regardless of who you support in this election, we emphasize the importance of exercising your right to vote. Your vote is your voice.
