The privatization of air traffic controller jobs is a dangerous proposition. Handing over this core public asset from the FAA to a private corporate board would give the airlines even more unchecked power to raise taxes and fees on consumers while making profit-driven decisions without Congressional accountability.
Our NATCA brothers and sisters do their jobs to keep us safe, and this is our chance to have their backs as well. CLICK HERE to send a message to your members of Congress, urging them to oppose privatization.
Rather than undermining workers, we must continue to modernize our air traffic control system and other aviation infrastructure. The U.S. government must also pursue aviation policies that create middle class jobs and protect the rights of employees, to uphold longstanding limits on control of U.S. airlines.
Privatization is wrong, and together, we must send a message to Congress that promotes responsible stewardship of our air traffic control system with sensible restrictions on corporate influence. CLICK HERE to take action now.
