Flight Attendant Sexual Harassment

68% of flight attendants experienced sexual harassment during their flying careers. “The time when Flight Attendants were objectified in airline marketing and people joked about ‘coffee, tea, or me’ needs to be permanently grounded. #TimesUp for the aviation industry to put an end to this.”- Sara Nelson https://bit.ly/2IvTmjj

Safety First – Cabin Jumpseat Responsibility

Tasked with what seems to be a never-ending list of responsibilities from the moment we check-in, we’re faced with the challenge of selecting between competing priorities. Starting at check-in reading e-mail, checking your mailbox, preparing your tablet device....... (continue)

NASA's Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS)

Aviation professionals submit reports to the ASRS when they are involved in, or observe, an incident or situation in which aviation safety may have been compromised. All submissions are voluntary and reports sent to the ASRS are held in strict confidence. Please provide your Local Council with copies of any reports that you submitted to ASRS by dropping those in your Local Council mailbox in the domicile. More about ASRS

When Service Animals Bite

During the past year we have seen an increase in the number of service animals traveling with passengers on our flights. With this increase and given the crowded nature of the aircraft cabins, dog bites by service animals to Flight Attendants and passengers have also increased. If you or a passenger experience an injury from a dog bite inflicted by a service animal, notify the captain and have the police, a Ground Security Officer (GSO) and a Customer Resolution Officer (CRO) meet the flight. Additionally, the injured party, should seek medical attention as needed, follow proper reporting and obtain a copy of the service animals shot record.

If you find yourself in a situation where this has occurred and you need assistance, please contact your Local Council Safety, Health & Security Committee.
