CWAers show their support for AFA-CWA Flight Attendants at United Airlines, who are facing layoffs.
Lots of action at the District 9 conference this week:
- CWAers stood in solidarity to show their support for AFA-CWA Flight Attendants at United Airlines. The airline says it will lay off 685 Flight Attendants.
- Participants took action against "fast track" authorization for the Trans-Pacific Partnership by calling and emailing their members of Congress.
- D9 participants helped "stamp out money in politics" by stamping paper currency with that message. CWA is working with citizen groups to stop the dangerous flood of money in politics, and also with Ben Cohen (of Ben and Jerry's ice cream) who founded the stampstampede.org campaign.
At the D9 conference, CWAers help stamp out big money in politics.
