Moments ago, TSA announced it is extending the mask enforcement directive to September 13, 2021. Earlier this month, our union called for the directive to be extended in a letter to TSA Administrator Pekoske and AFA President Sara Nelson testified on the issue before the Senate Subcommittee Subcommittee on Aviation Safety, Operations, and Innovation.

During an unprecedented crisis, it is more important than ever that Flight Attendants have a voice in our workplace.

Back to the Skies, We're Immunized!

Have you gotten your vaccine yet?

COVID-19 is still very much a threat to our health, jobs, industry and entire country. Every airline is reviewing current staffing levels and predictions for the fall, as payroll support and no involuntary furlough requirements end October 1. That’s why we are fighting to extend the CARES Act Payroll Support Program and our job protections through March 2021.

In a letter to Congressional leadership, the leaders of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA), the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA), the Communications Workers of America (CWA), the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), the Transport Workers Union (TWU), and the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), are calling on lawmakers to extend the Payroll Support Program (PSP) in the CARES Act through March 31, 2021.

It has never been more urgent to organize for our Flight Attendant union at Delta. Management comes and goes. We are the constant.

But in a crisis, we can’t count on anything. Without a contract, management can change things overnight. They are already telling us every day how things are changing, without discussion or anything in black and white to protect us.

COVID-19 has forced the country into an unprecedented emergency and the murder of George Floyd has propelled our nation into the streets to demand change and declare that Black Lives Matter. The AFA Executive Board unanimously passed our Black Lives matter resolution last week.

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA Executive Board unanimously adopted the following resolution on June 5, 2020:

WHEREAS, the murder of George Floyd is just one in a long line of incidents of law enforcement officers killing Black people; and,

WHEREAS, Black, brown and indigenous people face police violence, prosecution and incarceration in disproportionate numbers; and,

AFA’s mission is to unite all Flight Attendants and promote equality and employment for all, regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. This has been codified in our Constitution since 1976.
