Transportation Labor Supports 2024 FAA Reauthorization Deal

By Admin

WASHINGTON – Greg Regan, President of the Transportation Trades Department (TTD) of the AFL-CIO, released the following statement in response to Congress reaching a bipartisan agreement to reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA):

“As the largest transportation labor federation in the country, representing hundreds of thousands of aviation workers, TTD applauds the agreement reached by the House of Representatives and the Senate on the FAA reauthorization bill. It is crucial that air travel remains the safest mode of transportation in the world. We must prioritize the well-being of those who build, operate, and maintain our aviation system. 

“This FAA bill enhances existing safety standards, ensures sustainable growth of the aviation workforce, facilitates improvements to infrastructure and service, and rejects any policy changes to raise the pilot retirement age. We look forward to swift passage of the FAA bill through each chamber of Congress, promising a stronger, safer industry for workers and passengers.”
