Meet Your TSA Bargaining Team

Your TSA bargaining team is at the table fighting for Title 5 rights, fair pay raises, and improvements to TSO and passenger safety. AFGE is urging TSA to explore new ways to strengthen employee morale and address chronic understaffing and unrealistic line-speed standards.

Meet the people who are working diligently to negotiate an improved collective bargaining agreement that will expand upon the advances we’ve made since the first-ever TSA contract.
