After almost a decade without a voice at our nation's airports, 40,000 Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) voted for union representation with the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), AFL-CIO.
"That's right! Now it's time to roll up our sleeves and work even harder make the changes for all TSA Officers. We need this. We deserve this. It's been a long time coming. We will no longer tolerate being treated as the stepchild in Homeland Security!" celebrated Raul Samudio, a TSO at LAX. "I've been here since the beginning in 2002. Now we've got the power and the voice to make it better for all of our brothers and sisters!"
In Los Angeles County, nearly 3,000 TSOs at LAX, Burbank, and Long Beach airports join L.A. Labor.
