Hooray!… 44,000 Member Airport Screeners Union Ratifies Contract With Government

It’s Union Time!

(Labor Notes)

Good News… We now have 44,000 more public sector union members!
The Airport screeners union just ratified their first contract with the government.
NJ.com reported:

The nation’s 44,000 newly unionized airport screeners have ratified their first-ever collective bargaining agreement, giving them more say in what they wear on the job, the shifts they work and the time off they take, whether they can change from part-time to full-time work or back, their union announced today.

The American Federation of Government Employees union, which won the right to represent the screeners in an election last year, said its members voted 17,326 to 1,774 in favor of ratifying the first labor deal struck with the Transportation Security Administration since the agency was founded 10 years ago in the wake of 9/11.

    Molesters and baggage thieves, what could possibly go wrong?

  • Remember obama talking about building his citizen army, or some such term… hmmm, seems the public sector unions fit the bill just perfectly.

  • OH, JOY! NOT!

    and the hits just keep on coming

    Unionized pedophiles and rapists parasites.

    I have refused to fly anywhere that lands me in the US since they introduced the ridiculous TSA screening regulations. Now their unionized — that’s like adding insult to injury. Literally.

    Believe it or not, San Francisco privatized their airport screening and it’s 10 times better and more cost-efficient. Stossel did a segment on it not too long ago.

    Ah, something else to remember GW Bush for … compassionate conservation of the Democrap Party.

  • Mad Hatter

    44,000 more contributors to the Demo-rat party via the Unions courtesy of tax payers money.

    It’s Hope and Change just so wonderful. =/

    Great! The brown shirt goon squad now on their way to great riches and lucerative entitlements at the people’s expense.

  • Glenmore

    We’ll all be in the union soon enough since we will all be working for the government.

  • gracepmc

    44,000 Democrat votes secured. What a joke these people are. Pathetic.

  • Groped by the Union Label.

  • jackson_murrell

    With every passing day we are reminded why Bush and the Republicans originally opposed the creation of the TSA.

  • squeaky

    if i remember correctly [maybe not] didn’t you have to belong to the communist party [in russia]
    to have a job [or decent one]?

    [Under their new collective bargaining agreement, Transportation Security Administration officers get to spend more taxpayer money on their uniforms every year than a United States Marine Corps lieutenant can spend in a lifetime.]

  • JC

    So how long will it take them to strike demanding more money, fewer responsibilities and so on………..shutting down all air traffic if they don’t get their way?

    Can someone please help me off the ledge?

    As a conservative, hard working, respectful, God fearing christian, will I ever, ever have a voice in this country again?

    I’m not seeing a path any longer other than slave.

  • dw dude

    after we were promised by Tom ridge they would never be unionized when they were first hired.

  • Minky Wench

    Let. It. Burn.

    Having a GPS unit stolen out of my check bag with a TSA approved lock on it, I really will give up flying. Can you imagine how bad TSA will be with a union behind them.

  • This was the plan from the beginning. I remember some of the initial criticism about creating the TSA was the dems intended to create another union base.

    Folks, not brain surgery here. Simple demographic politics, which is OWNED by the democrats. We keep arguing principle, they keep playing Santa Claus.

    The brake on this, no more likely the side of the mountain on this is the fiscal end game. Sooner or later, not this year or next, especially if they manage to wrangle more taxes out of you at all levels (think carbon tax), it will all hit a wall.

    You really need to read my book.

    No use in complaining. It falls on deaf ears. The time has come to quit spending on things you don’t really need. Food water and shelter all else forget about it. This government is bound to make every citizen a slave to it’s engine. Alas Americans are so stupid they will continue to support this and beg the engine to feed them as well.

    Bush and the Catholics, hum. I beginning to think they may have had something to do with the flat tire I had on my old truck last year.

  • johnt

    Just more slugs on the Fed payroll, that many more on the gravy train & voting Democrat. It might be half the nation by 2016.

  • NCBOb

    This is this future of Obamacare too!

  • Phil

    Really is “T”ough “S”hit “A”merica. The epitome of a bunch of workers that needs all the “protections” a union confers workers. God help us from such a pathetic bunch of worthless, totally useless folks. Except, now, they’re of greater significance to our traitorous liberals.

  • dwd

    I thought forming a union was specifically forbidden when TSA was originally created…

  • LLiberty

    44,000….isn’t that how many jobs have been lost since obama was re-elected…
