Payroll Support Program Extended through American Rescue Plan

Aviation Jobs Protected Through September 30th, 2021

Today, working people across the country can celebrate – relief is on the way. The American Rescue Plan passed in the House of Representative and goes to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law. Included in the bill is a continuation of the Payroll Support Program (PSP), the vital workers-first provision that protects tens of thousands of aviation jobs, in addition to providing much-needed support to Americans across the country.

This Payroll Support Program:

  • guarantees wages & benefits for aviation workers and eliminates all furloughs through September 30th, 2021
  • extends the restriction on executive compensation and the ban on stock buybacks
  • restores air service to communities and supports distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine

 

By now, you have heard us proudly say: this was a Union-led effort. By standing together, Labor Unions ensured that any financial assistance from the government protected frontline workers. The PSP funding directly preserves our jobs and our healthcare another six months.

APFA members and our union brothers and sisters have worked really hard for this. APFA members alone sent more than 70,000 messages on the PSP to Congress this year. We showed up, we wrote letters, we tied up phone lines, and blasted social media. And our efforts were successful.

APFA is thankful for our strong advocates in Congress, of which there are many. A special acknowledgement goes to Chairman DeFazio, Speaker Pelosi, Leader Schumer, and Chairwoman Cantwell. Please take a moment to tell your elected officials how important this is to you.

Thank Your Representatives for Protecting Aviation Jobs

In Solidarity,
