‘MY CLOTHES ARE POISONING ME’ American Airlines stewardess claims her ‘sexy’ new uniform is making her SICK every time she goes to work (8 Pics)

A STEWARDESS claims her “sexy” new uniform is TOXIC and is making her sick.
American Airlines attendant Heather Poole, 44, said she has seen doctors several times since the new kit debuted in September last year.

She suffers from hyperthyroidism, making her vulnerable to “chemicals” in the clothing.
“I dread going to work. I love my job, but my job is making me sick”, she said.
The US airline dished out 1.5million new slate grey uniforms last year to its 70,000 employees to replace the old navy blue attire.
But staff have complained about suffering allergic-like reactions to the clothing.
Union reps have said their members reported “eye swelling, rashes, skin blistering” plus wheezing, headaches, and vertigo, according to NBC News.
More than 3,000 members of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants have complained.

Pilots have also said their new gear is giving them rashes and swollen eyes, Bloomberg News reported.
Dennis Tajer, an Allied Pilots Association spokesman, said around 100 of his members had raised issues.
“They have to be fit for duty. If the uniform is making them not fit for duty, then something has to change”, he said.
Ms Poole has written a blog about her struggles with the new uniform and how she feels ignored or ill-judged because of “stereotypes”.

 American Airlines said it has carried out lab tests on the uniform to prove it is safe
 Union officials have called on American Airlines to scrap the new uniform because of ‘adverse physical reactions’

“Since the uniform debuted on September 20, I’ve seen more doctors than I’ve ever seen in my life and I’ve learned things about toxic chemicals I never knew before.
“Over the last nine months, I was called ‘psycho’ and ‘crazy’,” she wrote.
“Because the sexy stereotype won’t die, nobody cares when we have something serious to discuss.”
“I’ve been a flight attendant for 20 years and I’ve never felt like this before.
“This is not a coincidence; so many other flight attendants have suffered a variety of ailments since the uniforms were introduced in September. From rashes and hives to serious respiratory issues.”
American Airlines and uniform suppliers Twin Hill said lab tests showed the clothes are safe.
Last month it emerged the airline would not renew its contract with Twin Hill when their contract expires in 2020.
