Airline, Airport, and Union Coalition Calls for Urgent Action to Protect U.S. Aviation Employees

WASHINGTON (March 19, 2020) — The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, representing 50,000 Flight Attendants at 20 airlines, today joined the entire U.S. aviation industry in a letter to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, House Speaker Pelosi, House Minority Leader McCarthy, Senate Majority Leader McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Schumer to request the Administration and Congress work as one to act as quickly as possible to address the debilitating economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the industry.

The industry is requesting immediate financial assistance in order to protect and preserve the 11 million jobs it either directly represents or supports.

“The rapid spread of COVID-19 and the government- and business-imposed restrictions on air travel are having never-before seen impacts on U.S. aviation and our employees,” states the letter. “The breadth and immediacy of the need to act cannot be overstated. It is urgent and unprecedented.”
