Union offers backing to airport screeners



"I think we probably will have a local in each city eventually, but this is an expression of our unity — one local for screeners nationwide," said Peter Winch, a union organizer. "This is an interim measure."

James Ferace, a screener at Pittsburgh International, is among the 13 initial members who formed the local. Ferace, who has declined to comment, also is a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit filed by the union against the TSA, which opposes full unionization of its employees.
