Posted on 11/17/2012 4:44:39 PM PST by TurboZamboni
On November 9, 2012 the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) issued a press release indicating that Workers at the Transportation Security Administration made history today when they voted to ratify the first-ever collective bargaining agreement at the agency. The agreement between the American Federation of Government Employees and TSA was ratified with a vote of 17,326-1,774.
The AFGE represents over 650,000 employees of the federal government. It is the largest union for non-postal federal employees and the largest union for D.C. workers who report directly to the mayor.
Brian Koenig writes that the AFGE coerces members to fork over between $14 and $16 out of each paycheck, providing the organization with up to $16 million more in revenue per year. Portions of this influx of money will go to subsidizing Democratic election campaigns and funding a number of liberal agendas.

now that theyre free from worry over being fired they can really give the winky a good yank.
abolish them ...and the DHS..they dont do anything to protect the us..they just drain cash
Of course the elites don’t experience the TSA pat downs. They fly private jets. The limo takes them directly to the plane. No security check, no luggage screening, no crowded waiting area, just a nice easy flight direct to the destination.
“TSA Unionized Americans Screwed”
Here, I’ll fix your headline:
TSA Americans Screwed
Pretty much sums it up!
...if I cant drive there, I ain't going there..
...I will not subject myself to fools.
...gives new meaning to being RAPED by the government....
I have a friend who’s a TSA agent. She was just telling me last week that her airport had been targeted for Unionization and NOBODY was happy about it. The TSA agents themselves were wondering if they could call in a union buster to stop the harassment.
Anyone who didn’t see this coming is brain-dead — especially the Republicans who voted for TSA’s creation.
So let’s see now, a government union controls how and even IF we travel, and the government controls our healthcare in Obamacare.
Welcome to the 21st Century!
If you have plenty of time, fly.
Unions are the rule now. sad for our country..I dont think we need TSA.
gove workers should not be able to unionize
Is it by airport? This vote didn’t unionize her?
What a disaster.
Does the fact that they work for the fedgov over-ride being in a right to work state?
Cheer up. There about to unionize our military. Berlin redux.
Unions constitutes a communist shadow government and will eventually destroy much of America’s economy.
Anybody taking bets on how long to the first strike?
They just now became union thugs? By the way TSA employees have been treating us for years, I thought they already had public employee immunity from discipline and customer complaints.
