CWA and other airline unions call for an extension of the CARES Act Payroll Support Program now to save our jobs!
It will only take a minute to make your voice heard. Send a letter to Congress telling them to extend the CARES Act Payroll Support Program through March 2021 to protect hundreds of thousands of aviation jobs.
If you have applied for CSLOA or VEOP, please check your company email immediately. The company has informed CWA that many members have not checked their company email, or the company's messages to members' email accounts are bouncing back. Approvals and denials of CSLOA and VEOP are being sent to applicants via company email, so check your company email account as soon as possible if you are awaiting a response.
