AFGE and TSA on Aug. 2, 2012 reached an agreement on the first-ever labor contract for the nation’s 45,000 TSA officers, culminating the union’s 10-year effort to provide workplace protections and improve employee working conditions.
Below is a full copy of the agreed-to terms the AFGE negotiating team, made up of officers from all over the country, reached with TSA management negotiators at the bargaining table. This is the contract you will be voting to ratify. (Click on the photo below to open the full document.)
If ratified, the agreement will provide important new workplace rights, improvements, protections and flexibilities. This contract is focused on the issues important to officers across the nation’s airports and will provide for increased uniformity, transparency and fair treatment. This agreement will also strengthen officers’ ability to carry out TSA’s vital mission of protecting the American people by fostering a family-friendly workplace where the employees have greater job satisfaction and feel supported in performing their important security work.
