Equal Rest for Flight Attendants: Call Congress Now

Equal Rest for Flight Attendants: Call Congress Now

June 13, 2017 — Both the Senate and the House are drafting their version of the FAA Reauthorization Bills and we need them to make combatting Flight Attendant fatigue a top priority.

Tell Senators and Representatives to include our 10 hours minimum rest provision along with a Fatigue Risk Management Plan (FRMP) in their respective bills.

Call your Senators today at 855-534-1774 and ask them to tell the Commerce Committee to include 10 Hours Rest, and not a minute less, in the FAA bill. 

Here's what you can say when you are connected:

“I’m your constituent and a Flight Attendant. Studies show I can become fatigued at work. I'm calling to urge the Commerce Committee to include 10-hour, non-reducible minimum rest for Flight Attendants and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan in the FAA Reauthorization Bill. Thank you.”

Call your Representative today at 855-980-2366 and ask them to tell the Transportation Infrastructure Committee to include 10 Hours Rest, and not a minute less, in the FAA bill.  

Here's what you can say when you are connected:

“I’m your constituent and a Flight Attendant. Studies show I can become fatigued at work. I'm calling to urge the Transportation Infrastructure Committee to include 10-hour, non-reducible minimum rest for Flight Attendants and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan in the FAA Reauthorization Bill. Thank you.”

Congressional fatigue studies confirm we need more rest. This is about safety, health and equality - the flight deck has 10 hours minimum rest and so should we.

At a recent Senate Hearing, Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) promised to include AFA's 10-hour minimum rest and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan in the FAA Reauthorization Bill this year.

Call your Senators TODAY at 855-534-1774!

Call your Representative TODAY at 855-980-2366!

Calling is easy: When you dial the number, you will automatically be connected to one of your Senator's offices after a brief message. It may take several attempts to reach both your Senators, so keep calling!
