NATCA Supports ALPA, AFA in FAA Bill Press Initiative
Wednesday, September 07, 2011
On Wednesday, the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) held a press conference at Washington National Airport in Washington, D.C., where aviation groups joined together in a pressing call on Congress to pass a multi-year FAA reauthorization bill.
"The Air Line Pilots Association urges Congress to get on track and act now to pass a long-term, multi-year FAA reauthorization bill,” stated Capt. Moak, ALPA’s president, at this week’s event. "The jobs of thousands of hard-working Americans, the safety of every passenger on every airplane, and the future of the U.S. airline industry depend on it."
Gathering alongside ALPA in support of a long-term FAA funding bill were members from several other aviation unions, including participants from NATCA itself, the Association for Flight Attendants, and the Allied Pilots Association.
NATCA backs ALPA and AFA in their ongoing efforts to draw attention to the fact that we need an FAA bill now to ensure safety and prevent any further rounds of layoffs and furloughs.
