How did I ever miss this?
I remember when the government first took over airport security not long after 9-11. There was a raging debate over allowing TSA agents to unionize. We were assured, at that time, that that would not happen. It was a condition of forming the TSA.
And yet I just learned that some 45,000 airport screeners reached their first-ever collective bargaining agreement with the TSA this week after TSA chief John Pistole agreed to allow them to unionize a year ago.
So if you thought service at the airport checkpoint/chokepoints was bad before (and it has been!), you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.
