The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA fights exclusively to improve conditions that affect the safety, health and security of flight attendants. The AFA-CWA Air Safety, Health and Security Department (ASHSD) provides full-time staff support in Washington, DC for the AFA-CWA Safety Committee chairs and members and is responsible for solving problems that cannot be solved at the carrier level.

We encourage you to contact the ASHS committee with any questions or concerns related to safety, health, and security.

It has always been approved to use gloves for picking up trays and trash. Gloves may be used for addressing medical emergencies. However, if you are in a situation on the airplane where you feel the use of gloves is necessary to protect your safety, use them. Once complete, use the method of glove removal recommended by the CDC for removing personal protective equipment.
