ACAA to Provide Free Lunches To Federal Workers on Fridays

Published on : Saturday, January 12, 2019

Fly PittsburghAs a gesture of appreciation to more than 200 federal employees working at Pittsburgh International Airport and Allegheny County Airport without pay due to the ongoing government shutdown, the Allegheny County Airport Authority will distribute free lunches to them on Fridays.

 

The Airport Authority has joined with Bruegger’s Bagels to provide bagged lunches that include a sandwich, chips, cookie and drink on all shifts for workers including TSA agents and FAA air traffic controllers who are essential to airport safety and security and to keeping operations running smoothly 24/7 at Pittsburgh International and Allegheny County Airport in West Mifflin.

 

A table will be set up on the landside ticketing level at 10 a.m. where airport staff will distribute some of the lunches. Lunches will also be delivered to air traffic controllers and other tower workers at AGC.

 

“We have not seen an impact on operations or lines here in Pittsburgh due to the shutdown. We are so thankful to the federal employees including TSA, FAA, Customs and others for continuing to work without pay at this critical time,” Airport Authority CEO Christina Cassotis said. “I think we all can agree that this is an issue that needs to be fixed quickly.”

 

The Airport Authority plans to continue providing the lunches on Fridays to federal workers until the government is reopened. Read more about the local TSA impact here.
