"TSA can do much to retain and invest in the current full time TSO workforce by dropping its opposition to collective bargaining rights and labor protections for TSOs, by treating them the same as other workers in DHS and the federal workforce. By restoring fundamental fairness to the workplace and addressing those important work-life issues that are pivotal to workers, including training, TSOs will be able to perform with confidence and learn new skills that could lead to promotions and improve safety."
AFGE is the largest federal employee union representing 600,000 workers in the federal government and the government of the District of Columbia, including the largest constituency of DHS employees. AFGE has been the only union to represent TSA employees since the agency's inception and is widely recognized as the TSA union.
