This afternoon, a standalone clean extension of Payroll Support Program (PSP) was introduced in the House of Representatives.
IAM members must act now to tell your Representative to support the DeFazio-Larsen PSP Extension (H.R. 8504), a clean extension of airline relief provided in the CARES Act.
Call your Representative at 202-224-3121 to urge them to pass H.R. 8504, a standalone extension of the airline Payroll Support Program through March 31, 2021, and to save hundreds of thousands of frontline airline workers’ jobs.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on the nation’s airlines to delay furloughs in anticipation of a successful PSP extension.
“We will either enact Chairman DeFazio’s bipartisan standalone legislation or achieve this as part of a comprehensive negotiated relief bill extending for another six months the Payroll Support Program,” said Pelosi. “As relief for airline workers is being advanced, the airline industry must delay these devastating job cuts.”
