2.21.24 – Members Of Congress And Elected Officials Support Flight Attendants

Members of Congress and Elected Officials Support Flight Attendants

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

On February 13th, Flight Attendants across the industry stood together in historic solidarity. As Union members, we have each other’s backs. On the picket line last week, we were supported by elected officials – at multiple bases, from all levels of government – who showed us that they have our backs, too.

Thank you for standing in solidarity with over 100,000 Flight Attendants in our effort to secure the contracts we deserve.

We were also supported by numerous state and local officials, including a few who are seeking election to the U.S. House of Representatives: John Morse, candidate for MD-3; State Rep. Julie Johnson, candidate for TX-32; Phoenix Vice Mayor Yassamin Ansari, candidate for AZ-3; and Delegate Joe Vogel, candidate for MD-6.

Flight Attendants travel with our congressional representatives as they fly to and from Washington every week. Members of Congress have a firsthand view into the increasingly challenging nature of our jobs. APFA is grateful for their continued support, not just in our fight to protect our profession, but in the broader struggle for all workers to be fairly compensated for the value of our labor. Capitol Hill needs more representatives who will lend their voice to the struggles of working people.

How can I help ensure that the representatives we elect to Congress are fighting for Flight Attendants and workers’ rights?
