REALLY EASY WAY TO HELP PILOTS!!!! COVID-19

Post by Dronepiper »

Hello Everyone!

ALPA has created a really easy tool to send an automated letter to your local MP regarding a call for economic support for airline employees. You don’t need to be an ALPA member to send this. Anyone can send this automated letter.

It takes no more than 10 seconds! The link is below:

Please help your fellow pilot! We want the government to support all pilots affected by COVID19.

Note: Click “Send a message now” and then scroll to the bottom of the next page and enter your contact details. SSO login is only for alpa members, and you can ignore that if you are not ALPA.

If I was a politician receiving a computer generated form letter would mean less to me than those meaningless online petitions. It might actually piss me off.

If you don’t forward this message, you will never find true love and will be murdered by the chain mail serial killer tonight.

Emails are easy enough to ignore, and the secretary can easily setup filtering to ignore mass mailers. Or, you'll get the standard; thanks for emailing me and making me aware of an issue that has nothing to do with me as I am a backbencher - as such; my secretary has forwarded your concerns to the relevant Cabinet Minister...

Letters, can be ignored as well, but it's harder to ignore reams of mail showing up in a politician's office. A pile of letters is going to get the attention of someone in the office, and are much more likely to be replied to.
