Washington, DC, May 23, 2012 – Veda Shook, International President of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), the world’s largest Flight Attendant union, issued a statement after the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security responded to AFA advocacy and directed the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to include Flight Attendants in the successful alternate security screening program ‘Known Crewmember.’ In addition to funding the TSA, the Fiscal Year 2013 Homeland Security Appropriations bill requires the TSA Administrator to “establish procedures allowing members of cabin flight crew of air carriers to participate in the Known Crewmember program” within 270 days.

We fully support TSA’s implementation of risk-based passenger security screenings as well as expedited alternate screenings as part of that process.
