In December 2016, TSA Officers voted to ratify the AFGE-TSA collective bargaining agreement. At that time, several articles had not been agreed to at the table including rules for the pay-for performance system, awards, grievances arbitrations, and investigations. After ratification, TSA and AFGE met with a goal of resolving as many open provisions as possible. After much discussion, the parties were able to settle some provisions in Articles 4, 9 and 11. The remaining disputed language will be submitted to arbitration for resolution.
AFGE will continue to educate TSA officers about their rights, advocate for them within the agency, and fight to make sure their concerns are heard on Capitol Hill.
