Airline Workers Demand Action on Payroll Support Program Extension

Last week, CWA members who work at American Airlines as passenger service agents and allies held a protest outside of the Charlotte office of U.S. Senator Thom Tillis calling on him to take action to extend the Payroll Support Program (PSP) in the CARES Act that saved 950,000 jobs in the aviation industry. The program is set to expire on September 30, and if Congress doesn’t act, airlines will lay off thousands of employees.
