TAKE ACTION: Urge Your Representatives To Co-sponsor the Prohibiting In-Flight Voice Communications on Mobile Wireless Devices Act of 2013

TAKE ACTION: Urge Your Senators To Co-Sponsor the “Commercial Flight Courtesy Act”

12-12-2013Congressional-Mtg.jpgThe Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently announced that it is reconsidering the decades-long ban on the in-flight use of cell phones. Expanded cell phone use will compromise Flight Attendants’ ability to maintain order in an emergency, increase cabin noise and tension among passengers, and add unacceptable risk to aviation security. The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA opposes this ill-advised change. Call your U.S. Representative today and urge them to show support and sign on to the letter by Congressmen DeFazio (D-OR) and Michael Grimm (R-NY) to FCC Commissioner Tom Wheeler opposing this policy change.
