Government Affairs Representatives Opening

AFA Government Affairs Department

AFA Government Affairs lobbies members of Congress, provides lobbying training to AFA members and organizes grassroots member activism around the issues that matter most to Flight Attendants. AFA is frequently invited to provide expert advice on Flight Attendant issues and to give testimony on behalf of our members in congressional hearings. The AFA Government Affairs Department and our extensive network of Flight Attendant activists influence decisions made at the highest levels of government that directly impact our profession.

When AFA successfully shepherds a Flight Attendant issue through the legislative process until it is enacted into law, we can take it off of the negotiating table and use our leverage to obtain other contractual gains.

The Government Affairs Department has won many issues over the years that impact our daily jobs, such as the ” No Knives of Airplanes” campaign and most recently is working on the “Fight for 10”

If you have experience or knowledge in this area, are passionate about legislative issues that affect our industry, and would like to be our voice on Capitol Hill, please respond to Diane Lyons or myself for an application. If selected you will need to sign a one year commitment to serve.

We currently have 2 members, however we would like to get this committee more involved. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
