The CARES Act provision that saved 950,000 aviation jobs in the immediate aftermath of COVID-19 – the Payroll Support Program (PSP) – is set to expire in October, even though the aviation industry's crisis is far from over.
If the Senate does not take action soon, mass layoffs in the aviation industry are inevitable. The loss of the PSP will be devastating to all aviation workers, including passenger service agents, AFA-CWA members, their families, and our communities. Senators need to hear from all of us now.
Click here to send a message to your Senators telling them to extend the CARES Act Payroll Support Program through March 2021 to protect hundreds of thousands of aviation jobs.
CWA members like Yasmeen Alston, a member of Local 3640 in Winston-Salem, are urging their Senators to extend the PSP program. Watch the video here.
