Oh boy, what an idea. Why don’t we unionize arrogant, incompetent, power-crazy TSA agents. The unfriendly skies just got a whole lot uglier.
In a significant victory for federal employee unions, the Federal Labor Relations Authority decided Friday that Transportation Security Administration staffers will be allowed to vote on union representation.
The decision clears the way for a campaign by the government’s two largest labor organizations, the American Federation of Government Employees and the National Treasury Employees Union, to represent some 50,000 transportation security officers.
As if the TSA wasn’t a clusterfuck already, now it will be almost impossible to fire any of them.
