AA Uniform DOs and DON'Ts

AA Uniform DOs and DON'Ts

Information for AFA members at Envoy, Piedmont, and PSA

DO visit AFA’s uniform reactions reporting site and report any uniform reactions to AFA, in confidence.

  • DO stop wearing the TwinHill garments. To formally opt out, contact the TwinHill call center (Envoy) or contact inflight (PSA and Piedmont). More detailed instructions are posted HERE. We are recommending that ALL of our members opt out of the TwinHill garments because: (1) Fabric testing has identified various sensitizers, irritants, hormone disruptors, and probable/possible carcinogens; (2) A growing number of our members are reporting symptoms; (3) Some Flight Attendants who are OUT of the uniform are reporting symptoms when they work NEAR those who are still wearing the uniforms.

  • DO order the Aramark alternative IF you are told to do so, but DON’T wear it YET. We hope that Aramark is a viable option, but the company must provide sufficient assurance that those garments were produced responsibly and will not cause more of the same problems. AFA has asked the company for that information in writing.

  • DO wear EITHER your “old blues” OR purchase/be reimbursed for the maximum number of grey suiting and white shirt garments that your management allows.

If you want to wear “old blues” but don’t have any suitable garments, DO try to track some down

  • At PSA, contact your AFA MEC Safety/Health Chair and request the pieces you need; the AFA team will try to help you through their “open closet.”

  • At Envoy and Piedmont, contact your supervisor and request the “old blues” pieces that you need.

  • If you have “old blues” in good condition that you don’t need, DO show that you care and donate them to someone who does. At PSA, contact your AFA council, above. At Envoy and Piedmont, contact your supervisor.

  • DO return your TwinHill garments to your local inflight office. They are the company’s property and they need to be out of your closet and your home.

  • DO visit www.afanet.org/uniforms for current information on reimbursement options, chemical testing of garments, and general advice.

Your uniform should not make you sick. AFA is here to support you.

We are stronger together, better together.
