Flight Attendants Union Endorses Charles Booker for United States Senate in Kentucky

KENTUCKY (June 8, 2020) — Today, Monday, June 8, 2020, the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA) endorses Charles Booker for United States Senate in Kentucky. 

AFA President Sara Nelson released the following statement on the endorsement of Booker:

"In Kentucky, Charles Booker is providing the kind of leadership we need for our entire country. His record on fighting for working people and labor rights is strong and deep.

“Mitch McConnell has put Flight Attendants and other working people in jeopardy. McConnell stood in the way of ending the 35 day government shutdown, refused to move to a vote legislation that had overwhelming bipartisan support to save pensions people in Kentucky count on, and during this national crisis he is putting removal of corporate liability for unsafe working conditions above any real help for people doing essential work during a pandemic or standing in the unemployment lines. 

“In this moment, we need leaders who understand that our democracy requires working people to have power to ensure the value we create is shared with us equitably and with fairness for all communities. Charles Booker is a fighter for Kentuckians and the Flight Attendants in Kentucky need his leadership more than ever. But for the sake of our county's future, all of us need Charles Booker in the U.S. Senate. 

“That is why our union is not only proud to endorse Charles Booker, we will be working day and night to make sure he is elected."


The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, (AFA) AFL-CIO represents nearly 50,000 Flight Attendants at 19 airlines. AFA is the union that has advanced the Flight Attendant profession for 74 years, beating back discrimination and improving wages, benefits, working conditions, and aviation safety, health and security in the aircraft cabin.
