Take Action: Storm the Airwaves on 8-10

Take Action: Storm the Airwaves on 8-10

August 2, 2017 — To keep the momentum going for 10 hours irreducible rest and protecting good U.S. aviation jobs, AFA is calling for an on-line Day of Action on August 10 (our minimum rest needs to move from 8-10). 

Day of Action

We are asking every Flight Attendant to contact your Representative, two Senators and to join in our social media (Twitter) messaging campaign.

The challenge is to get as many AFA members as possible to sign-up for a Twitter account. Twitter is extremely effective for contacting members of Congress and getting the attention of corporations and media. We will make it easy for you! Just take a few minutes now to set up your Twitter account (if not already signed up) and make sure you keep your user name and password. On August 10 (8-10), we will provide a click through list to targeted members of Congress.

Getting active on Twitter has never been easier. Please help make sure your flying partners, family and friends have Twitter accounts and follow AFA (@afa_cwa)!

To create a Twitter account:

  1. Go to http://twitter.com and find the sign up box, or go directly to https://twitter.com/signup.

  2. Enter your full name, phone number, and a password.

  3. Click Sign up for Twitter.

  4. In order to verify your phone number, Twitter will send you an SMS text message with a code. Enter the verification code in the box provided.

  5. Once you've clicked Sign up for Twitter, you can select a username (usernames are unique identifiers on Twitter) — type your own or choose one Twitter has suggested. Twitter will tell you if the username you want is available.

  6. Double-check your name, phone number, password, and username.

  7. Click Create my account. You may be asked to complete a Captcha to let Twitter know that you're human.

  8. Follow @afa_cwa on Twitter. 

8/10 Day of Action checklist:

  1. Create a Twitter Account.

  2. Like AFA on Facebook and follow AFA on Twitter.

  3. Schedule 15 min on your calendar for August to to make a difference.

  4. Spread the word with your flying partners.
