Feds Allow TSA to Unionize: Will They Also Escape Obamacare?Submitted by SteveMT on Wed, 11/17/2010 - 00:20
Remember that unions are exempted from Obamacare. I believe that this is equivalent to giving the TSA a waiver for Obamacare. These people will now be fully assimilated into the power grid to perhaps be later called upon to enforce more government-sponsored tyranny.

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.
"It is no secret that the morale of the TSO workforce is terrible as a result of favoritism, a lack of fair and respectful treatment from many managers, poor and unhealthy conditions in some airports, poor training and testing protocols and a poor pay system," said AFGE President John Gage. "The morale problems are documented by the government's own surveys. TSOs need a recognized union voice at work, and the important decision of the FLRA finally sets the process in motion to make that right a reality."
