Sexual Harassment Survey

Take the Sexual Harassment Survey

A national discussion on sexual assault and sexual harassment is taking place - and now is the time to do everything we can to eradicate this from our workplace. As AFA wrote in a recent Op-Ed in The Washington Post, "Our union was formed to give women a voice and to beat back discrimination and misogyny faced on the job. We defined our careers at the bargaining table, in the courts and on Capitol Hill." But the industry never denounced that era and it is time to stamp it out for good. No more "Coffee, Tea, or Me."

We are conducting a 3 minute anonymous survey to gather information about Flight Attendants’ experiences with onboard sexual harassment and assault. Your answers will help quantify the extent and nature of this issue.

Take a few moments NOW to complete this short survey >

The survey is open until March 21, 2018. 

Continuing the Conversation

We continue to raise Flight Attendants' experiences in the national discussion on sexual assault and sexual harassment to press for change.

Industry Response

Alaska Airlines CEO Brad Tilden took the opportunity to learn from an event on an Alaska plane for reflection and work with AFA Flight Attendant leaders at Alaska to address this issue in meaningful way. Alaska has continued to support Flight Attendants who have called out inappropriate behavior by passengers.

United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz immediately responded to our Op-Ed with a public letter to all of United’s employees. In the letter, that is worth a full read, Oscar definitively states, “When you join the United team, or when you board a United flight, you can be sure that by doing so you are expressing your support of a company that backs up our words with our actions...We have a special responsibility to [Flight Attendants] to ensure they can do their essential work in the most positive environment possible. There is no place for sexual harassment at United, and I am asking that you all join with me in making a commitment to zero tolerance for sexual harassment of any of our colleagues and customers.”

AFA continues to call on all other airlines to follow Alaska's and United's lead to help end sexual harassment and spread the message through aviation that everyone has an equal seat at the table.
