Flight attendant union praises Trump’s TPP policy

Statement by Sara Nelson, International President of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA) on President Trump’s executive order to withdraw from the negotiating process of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

“Formally withdrawing from the TPP is the right move for working people and their families in this country. President Trump has repeatedly stated that his guiding principle will be to put American jobs first. We encourage the Trump Administration to enforce Open Skies agreements that promised to maintain and increase opportunities for aviation workers. Attention to the pending Norwegian Air International case is the place to start. We look forward to working with President Trump on this critical jobs issue.”


AFA members stood together in a massive five-year campaign with affiliated labor and a broad coalition across the country to put the dangers of the TPP at the forefront of national discussion. President Trump made this a key issue of his campaign, and thanks to the voices of American labor the TPP was stopped last fall because it did not have majority support in Congress. President Trump put the final period on that sentence. AFA will continue to press for trade agreements that protect and promote good jobs for hard-working Americans.
