AFGE: TSA Must Do More to Protect Its Workforce and the Public
Date:4/28/2009

t would cause public panic. However, at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, baggage screeners were given protective gear while checkpoint screeners - who come in direct contact with travelers - are being denied the gear.

"TSA has an unfortunate pattern of inconsistent responses when it comes to issues of employee safety," Gage said. "This is a perfect example of why collective bargaining in general, and one nationwide contract specifically, is needed at this agency. A measured and consistent response to emergencies at our nation's ports is exactly what the creation of the agency was meant to achieve. AFGE seeks collaboration with DHS and TSA to ensure that TSOs have all they need to protect themselves the flying public from infection."

AFGE is the largest federal employee union representing 600,000 workers in the federal government and the government of the District of Columbia, including tens of thousands of DHS employees in agencies such as the Border Patrol, Citizenship and Immigration Services, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Federal Protective Service, FEMA and TSA.
