Equal Rest for Flight Attendants: Call Your Senators Now

Equal Rest for Flight Attendants: Call Your Senators Now

May 10, 2017 — The Senate is drafting their version of the FAA Reauthorization Bill and we need them to make combatting Flight Attendant fatigue a top priority.

Tell Senators to include our 10 hours minimum rest provision along with a Fatigue Risk Management Plan (FRMP) in the base bill.

Call your Senator TODAY at 855-534-1774 and tell them Flight Attendants need 10 hours minimum rest and not a minute less!

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 Senate Hearing last week, 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 Senator TODAY at 855-534-1774! 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!

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.”
