Over the past eight years, we’ve been fighting unfair work rules and policies on behalf of Transportation Security Officers (TSO) on Capitol Hill, in meetings with TSA management and in court.
Even though the law creating TSA gives the agency unprecedented authority and TSA has been exercising it, AFGE is able to bring justice to the workplace by winning TSOs their jobs back and influencing positive changes in work rules. TSA has revised its policies numerous times after the union brought the issues up with management.
