TSA Officers
TSA’s Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) are responsible for screening passengers and bags at our nation’s airports. They perform their duties with professionalism and dedication.  However, compared to nearly every other federal employee, TSOs are compensated on a lesser pay scale and are denied the same workplace protections and due process rights. It is unjust to continue to ask these officers to perform their critical and dangerous duties while not allowing them equivalence with their fellow federal employees, including protection and guidelines outlined by the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act and Office of Personnel Management guidelines.

Help AFGE petition the White House to eliminate this unfair discrepancy by granting GS scale pay and full Title 5 rights and protections to all TSA officers by executive action: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov//petition/grant-tsa-officers-same-rights-other-federal-employees.
