"We congratulate our fellow aviation security professionals on their decision to have a strong voice at work. The training and expertise of the thousands of TSOs across the country play a vital role in aviation security. As safety professionals, Flight Attendants count on TSOs every day to ensure a secure work environment and safe travels for passengers.
"When workers have the ability to engage in fair union elections, free from interference and intimidation, democracy prevails and they are able to gain a strong voice in the workplace. AFGE has been the voice for Transportation Security Administration employees since the agency’s inception in 2001 and will continue to assist TSOs through union representation on the front lines of maintaining aviation security."
