Can I join the Union…YES!
"Employees MAY ENGAGE IN UNION ACTIVITIES when they are off duty,
including when they are on breaks, provided that they do not disturb employees
who are on duty."
Guidance Concerning Union Activity, sent by the
TSA Office of Chief Counsel to Federal Security Directors
December 12, 2002From Adm. James M. Loy, TSA Administrator:
"Screeners can, of course, join unions and individually be represented
by union officials in workplace grievances, for example. That is THE RIGHT
OF EVERY SCREENER, a right I fully respect."
Letter from J. M. Loy to CyberFEBS, March 31,2003
What can the Union do for you…
“AFGE may not be able to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement
at the moment, but we sure as hell can provide them with representation
in other critical areas, such as on Capitol Hill, in the courts and at
their workplaces” Harnage added. “We can represent them at
grievance hearings, EEO complaints and workers’ compensation cases.
We can file unfair labor practices, lobby Congress, make sure their whistleblower
rights are protected and ensure their own safety at the worksite. And
that’s just what we’re going to do.”
