APFA union has issued this statement:

Today marks day 27 of the Government shutdown and our Nation’s airports are feeling the impact. At DFW Airport yesterday, TSA workers hosted a rally to show their frustration with how the shutdown is impacting them.

Lori Bassani, National President of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) made the following statement yesterday in support of the TSA Union members of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE).

“TSA workers are an instrumental part of the aviation industry, ensuring the safety and security of our crews and passengers every day. As Flight Attendants, we feel safer due to the important service our AFGE Brothers and Sisters provide. Today and every day we stand shoulder to shoulder with AFGE members and urge the Government to end this shutdown and pay their employees for their critical part in keeping our country secure.”
