As TSA officers, you are the first line of defense for aviation security. You protect passengers, pilots, flight attendants, and our country. You are an integral part of our national security framework, but do not have the same workplace rights and protections as other federal workers. Together, we can change that.
AFGE has been speaking to lawmakers and rallying up support on Capitol Hill for legislation that would finally provide TSOs with much-needed workplace protections. Last month, we worked with Representatives Bennie Thompson and Nita Lowey to introduce the Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act (H.R. 1140). If passed, this bill would put TSOs on the GS pay scale and grant you the same workplace rights as other federal workers.
Protecting TSOs in the workplace is one of our top 2019 priorities, and we need your help.
