Keep Calling the Senate for 10 Hours Rest!

Keep Calling the Senate for 10 Hours Rest!

FEB 29, 2016 - Good job calling our Senators last week. We have to keep up calls until our rest and fatigue management is included in the Senate Reauthorization bill, introduction of the bill is expected any day.

The entire affiliated labor community supports our call for more rest. Let’s keep this momentum going. Call your Senator TODAY.

Sample Script:

"Hello, my name is _________ and I live in _________. I'm a Flight Attendant calling to urge Senator _____________ to support 10 hours minimum rest and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan for Flight Attendants in the FAA Reauthorization Bill. This was already included with bi-partisan support in the House version of the bill. This is about safety, my health and equality. And it is essential to maintaining the world’s safest aviation system."

Check the list at the end of this update - if your Senator is listed your call is especially important. If your Senator is not listed, your call is still important for building momentum to get adequate rest and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan.

Retweet AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka here.
