Take Action Now to Keep Aviation Workers Safe
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our industry and our profession, ALPA is working to ensure that the U.S. and Canadian governments enact protections for aviation workers. We have achieved some legislative victories already, but the health of frontline aviation workers and the general public remains at risk.
U.S. Call to Action
COVID-19 Health and Safety "Guidelines" Must Be Mandatory for U.S. Airlines
Pilots and other aviation industry workers are essential employees performing critical work during this unprecedented time, but many U.S. airlines are not following health and safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Federal Aviation Administration. This puts the health of not just aviation workers, but also the general public at risk.
Please join our call to action and tell Congress to make the FAA do its job and mandate that airlines follow these necessary health guidelines:
- Face coverings for all crew and passengers while traveling;
- Proper cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitization of aircraft, including the flight deck; and
- Employee notification of COVID-19 cases in the workplace.
