The IAM is demanding that Congress make it a felony to assault Customer Service Agents while on duty. This is an amendment to the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2016 (HR 4441). To make this happen, we need your help.
Please call House Transportation Committee members and tell them to support Representative Garamendi’s Airline Worker Assault Amendment before they vote this morning.

Under current law, it is a felony to assault a “flight crew” member, such as a Flight Attendant or Pilot. Customer Service Agents, who deal directly with the flying public, should be treated equally, as assaults against Customer Service Agents are on the rise.
