Flight Attendant Fatigue Amendment has PASSED!
February 11, 2016
We did it! Ten hours rest and an FAA mandated Fatigue Risk Management Program for Flight Attendants is in the FAA Reauthorization Bill (Aviation Innovation, Reform and Reauthorization Act of 2016, AIRR Act)!
This is a huge win but the fight doesn’t stop here, this is just the beginning. We have won the first battle, however there are still billion dollar companies lobbying against us. Our power is in our collective voice.
Join us March 16th to continue our #IAMfor10 fight for 10 hours rest and an FAA mandated Fatigue Risk Management Program for Flight Attendants. We will be having a rally and lobbying event in Washington, DC and this is your chance to make your voice heard!
March 16th – Washington, D.C.
10:30 a.m. Rally for Rest at U.S. Capitol
12:00 – 4:00 p.m.Congressional Office Visits
Be a part of history!
If you have questions or can join us on Capitol Hill to fight for our rights please email IAMfor10@gmail.com
This achievement has truly been a team effort and shows how much we can accomplish through solidarity. From IAM leadership to the IAM Legislative Department to our IAM members, we were all united, stood up for what was right and achieved this success together.
