URGENT: Take Action Now to #DenyNAI
April 29, 2016 — TAKE ACTION NOW! Register your objection to the DOT ruling to allow Norwegian Air International to operate on an Irish certificate and trample labor standards in the U.S. and E.U.
We need each and every Flight Attendant and the traveling public to take the following actions. We only have a few weeks to stop this threat to our jobs!
- Fill out the form to register your objection to NAI with the DOT. The deadline is May 6, 2016.
Call your Representatives and tell them to support HR 5090. Find your Representative at www.house.gov and call their D.C. and home offices.
"I am a Flight Attendant and constituent. I am urging you to co-sponsor H.R. 5090, to enforce the high labor standards negotiated in the E.U./U.S. Open Skies agreement. And, I urge you to also sign on to the Collins/Garamendi letter to Secretary Foxx to deny the NAI foreign air carrier permit. We can't let U.S. aviation be destroyed like U.S. shipping. This is about my job, our nation's economy and our safety and security."
- Join the picket line in front of the White House on May 12 to show our unity and strength in opposition to the recent tentative approval of NAI.
