KEEP CALLING AND EMAILING CONGRESS!
We have raised the volume on the damage this shutdown is doing to our members and to the National Airspace System. Make no mistake – we are in the middle of a fight that we did not choose, nor did we provoke. We will continue to fight to end the shutdown, but we need EVERY member active and engaged.
My name is (name). I am an (air traffic controller/aviation safety professional) at (facility) and a constituent of yours in (state) .
I have been (working/furloughed) for nearly a month. Last week, I did not receive my first paycheck of 2019. Each day this shutdown continues, the financial burden on me and my family gets worse. The amount of stress that this shutdown has caused for me – and the damage it is doing to our National Airspace System – is unsustainable.
It is wrong that my colleagues and I are being used as pawns in a political fight that is unrelated to aviation. Please tell the Senator that (his/her) constituents need this shutdown to end NOW!

Please ask your spouse, family members, friends, neighbors, and everyone in your contact list to make calls as well. We aren't taking a position related to anything other than ending the government shutdown and funding the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). We will not ask you to advocate for or against any of the issues at play in this standoff. We simply want to let our elected officials know that this shutdown MUST END! The more calls that are made, the louder and clearer our collective voice is heard. It is VERY important that EVERY member make these calls.
