Flight Attendants Union Coalition Endorses President Obama for Re-Election (USA-Yahoo!News)

September 29, 2012

The Flight Attendants Union Coalition(FAUC), representing 100,000 Flight Attendants at carriers nationwide, today announced their collective endorsement of the re-election of President Barack Obama.

In an unprecedented step, the coalition is calling on its 100,000 members, to the degree possible, to set their flying schedules between now and the election in order to maximize their time volunteering for the Obama-Biden ticket.

Coalition members are: The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, Association of Professional Flight Attendants, Transport Workers Union, International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

The coalition said that under the Obama Administration, Flight Attendants for the first time gained coverage under the Family and Medical Leave Act, became eligible for “Known Crew Member” status at airport security checks and are soon to be covered by certain OSHA guidelines that make aircraft cabins an infinitely safer environment for passengers and crew, among other positive changes.
