We've seen catastrophe before. We know what didn't work before and we won't let those things happen again. We need relief that focuses on real people. And we have a plan for that. Send a letter to your Members of Congress to demand that any public relief plan be a People First plan with legally-binding rules, including paycheck continuation.

The airline industry is in crisis. Our jobs and our paychecks are on the line.

COVID-19 Airline Relief Starts with Workers

March 16, 2020 — AFA is working around the clock to fight for our health and safety and our jobs. Listen to this message:

Congratulations on your hard earned bonus—now let’s go organize to lock it in!

AFA is proud to celebrate Black History Month. Last year, the AFA Executive Board passed a resolution recognizing Black History Month and committing to celebration and education, including a Black History Month Pin. 

There is so much positivity, energy, and momentum in our campaign to organize with AFA! This week, we exercised our legal right to advocate for our union and talk with our flying partners about organizing with AFA at work, in non-work areas. It has always been our federally protected right to be present in the lounges and in non-work areas to organize.

Stop by, learn more, and say hi! The best part of our job is being together.

Congratulations to all the Flight Attendants, pilots, gate agents and every worker who contributed to Delta's success and is receiving a profit sharing check! Airlines are raking in record profits today, and every worker should share in the wealth.

Do you like your profit sharing? Lock it in with AFA!
