TSA Officers fill an incredibly important role in our national security framework, but do not have the same workplace rights and protections as other federal workers, but with your help we can change that. The Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act (H.R. 4488) would put TSOs on the General Schedule pay scale and provide them with much needed worker protections like the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act.
TSA Officers would finally receive fair pay under the General Schedule (GS) pay system—the same system used by most federal agencies.
TSA Officers would no longer be penalized for using sick leave because TSA would be required to follow the Office of Personnel Management leave guidelines.
TSA Officer collective bargaining agreements would cover the same range of workplace issues and follow the same rules as other federal agencies.
It would be a civil rights violation for TSA to fire TSA Officers based on medical symptoms and diagnoses that do not affect their work performance.
TSA Officers could appeal unfair disciplinary decisions to a neutral fact finder OTHER than TSA.
