Day of Action Registration

Flight Attendants across the industry are fighting to raise the standards for our career. More than two-thirds of the U.S. Flight Attendants are in contract negotiations right now, including red-hot contract fights at Southwest, Alaska, Air Wisconsin, United, Omni, American, Frontier, PSA, Mesa and more. Now is the time to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in solidarity.

Below you will find the schedule for Day of Action events. Please make plans to join Transport Workers Union (TWU), the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), and the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA). You do not need to participate at your domicile or even base city. You are encouraged to participate at any location that is convienient for you. 

NOTE: All times are local to the city specified. 

Day of Action Virtual Picket

If you’re scheduled to work or won’t be able to make it to a picketing event in person, you can still participate in our Worldwide Day of Action. Help turn up the heat on social media and take part in our virtual picket!

Step 1: Download, Screenshot, Print a Picket Sign

Download or screenshot your choice of picket sign (see below) and print it so you’ll have it with you on the day of the event.

Step 2: Take a Supportive Selfie or Crewfie

Take a selfie with your sign, preferably in uniform! This is a great opportunity to involve your whole crew in the activity. See another crew in the airport? Stop and take a joint photo. This Day of Action is all about solidarity across the industry!

Important Note
Don’t take your selfie while on duty or on the aircraft. A great time to take a picture would be in the terminal after deplaning or upon arrival at your layover hotel.

Step 3: Post Your Picture on Social Media

While our informational picketing events are happening, post your picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! Use hashtags #556StrikesBack #FlightAttendantsFightBack #1u; tag or mention @twulocal556 ; and set your post to public so others can see your message.

  • The airline industry couldn’t function without the hard work of Flight Attendants. Our days are longer, our rest is shorter and planes are fuller than ever! We need a #ContractNow. #556FightsBack
  • I walked the picket line today to fight for [[insert your own issue]]. Ready to do whatever it takes to push our careers forward!  #FlightAttendantsFightBack #PayUsOrChaos #556FightsBack
