Council #19 Leafleting
February 13 & 14 at SeaTac
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!!
We will be leafleting from 11AM – 4PM on February 13th and 6AM – 9AM/1PM – 4PM on February 14th.
Alaska AirGroup supports our actions to stop the shutdown. You may wear your uniform, red t-shirts or street clothes (however uniforms are preferred!).
We need to make certain that the public and our co-workers understand the serious effects of a government shutdown on aviation safety.
There is a real threat of continuing the shutdown to day 36. Federal workers were already stretched to a breaking point and may have not received the pay the are due from the 35 day shutdown and programs have not started again. The system will be in crisis if we go to day 36 and it may not be able to recover quickly.
White House Chief of Staff Mulvaney said on Meet the Press that we “absolutely cannot” rule out another shutdown. The Washington Post and others report talks are stalled, and Reuters reports that Congressional negotiators don’t even have meetings scheduled for the coming week.
It is critical that we take action. This is about our safety, our security, and our jobs. To get the full briefing, there is a webcast tomorrow at 2PM PST. Click Here to register for the webcast.
We all need to understand two things:
- Our lives are on the line
- Our jobs are on the line
If we show how fiercely we are willing to stand up for our lives and our jobs, that translates to real power for fixing all the other issues plaguing us in our individual airlines.
