TSA Workers Begin Voting On Exclusive Union Representative

Tabulation To Begin April 20th

Some 44,000 Transportation Security Administration employees at airports across the country began voting Wednesday on a proposal to elect the American Federation of Government Employees as their exclusive union representative. Voting will take place from March 9 to April 19, with the results being tabulated beginning April 20. The election is being conducted online and via telephone with each voter receiving a personal ID and PIN number.

As voting got underway, AFGE National President John Gage issued the following statement:

"There is one reason we are in an election today, and that is AFGE. This election is only possible because of the innovative, outside-the-box thinking of AFGE. Only AFGE had the insight to file a petition for a union election prior to the affirmation of collective bargaining rights.

"Everyone, including the Treasury union, questioned our decision to file an election petition without first having collective bargaining rights, but it doesn't take a genius now to see the wisdom in that decision. The bargaining rights were affirmed by the TSA administrator in February, at which point the election already had been called for. Now, we are able to immediately settle the question of representation, which means that AFGE will be poised to begin negotiations immediately after winning the election.

"AFGE leaders, activists and staff have been visiting airports throughout the country for the past two weeks and one thing is clear: TSOs are ready to vote overwhelmingly for AFGE. From the beginning, only AFGE has stood by TSOs. Only AFGE took on the most powerful government in the world and would not accept that TSOs could not have a voice at work. Only AFGE never gave up. We have carried this fight alone.

"I am particularly proud of AFGE's diversity, our union democracy, and our bottom-up emphasis that keeps our rank-and-file members first and foremost."
