NACA joined with 12 other associations and unions in the airline industry Wednesday, October 7, to urge Congress to resume negotiations with the administration to extend the Payroll Support Program (PSP) for the aviation industry.
The letter stated, in part:
Since early summer, we have called for a COVID relief package that would address the dire economic consequences facing the entire transportation sector. Airline workers are already experiencing the impact of inaction and simply cannot wait any longer for federal aid.
During circumstances as dire and significant as these, an idea that enjoys resounding support from majorities in both parties and in both houses of Congress should not fail. We call on leaders to resolve any procedural issues and proceed as quickly as possible to extend the PSP in time to preserve this extremely effective and efficient jobs and infrastructure program.
