Pride Month Profiles: Hunter Chumbley

Hunter Chumbley

For Pride Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various LGBTQ+ workers who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Hunter Chumbley of the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA).

First Officer Hunter Chumbley is a Boeing 777 pilot and serves as the vice chair of ALPA’s Diversity, Equity, Belonging and Inclusion Committee, helping to promote a culture on the flight deck where all pilots can be their authentic selves and helping to foster a future generation of commercial airline pilots that better reflects the composition of the communities ALPA pilots serve. “Ensuring that all our members are reflected in our work representing ALPA pilots is our core value. Just like the larger labor community, we strive to advance our profession now and in the future, to anyone who sees themselves as an airline pilot while maintaining a highly qualified workforce, highest safety standards and quality working conditions for all.”
