Thompson on Ratification of TSA and AFGE Agreement

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, released the below statement following news that workers at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) voted to ratify the collective bargaining agreement negotiated on their behalf by the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) and TSA. The contract will take effect on December 9, 2012.

After over a decade of struggling for basic workplace rights, Transportation Security Officers were finally given the opportunity to vote on a contract that ensures that their voice will be heard in the workplace. They voted overwhelmingly in favor of ratification of the contract. This contract will improve both morale and workplace conditions.
