    Make Your Calls to the Senate for 10 Hours Rest

    fight for 10

    Until we have our 10 Hour Rest, we need to take action every day! But TODAY especially! Each day the Senate offices keep a tally of calls from constituents and the top issues get reported to the Senators. That's why AFA Local leaders and Government Affairs activists are out in the airport today encouraging calls from every Flight Attendant. That's why we need you to take a minute right now to make your two calls to your Senators. 855-534-1774.

    The House FAA Reauthorization Bill has our 10 Hours in it. The Senate bill allows management to reduce to 9 hours, and several airlines are working hard to keep it that way. Fatigue studies show we are fatigued - and more rest is needed! Equal rest with the flight deck is the bare minimum, but they are fighting even that! Stand up, fight back and hold our elected representatives accountable for our safety, health and equality!

    Call 855-534-1774 to tell your Senators to maintain the House language of 10 Hours Rest for Flight Attendants in the FAA Reauthorization Bill. We need equal 10 hours minimum rest with the flight deck and not a minute less.

    After you make your call, text a flying partner and tell them to call. We need every Flight Attendant to weigh in with their Senators to make our 10 hours rest a reality.

    Share pictures of you and your flying partners making calls using the #Fightfor10 on Twitter (@afa_cwa) or send them to press@afacwa.org
