Title 5 for TSOs!Print

TSA Council 100As Transportation Security Officers (TSOs), we have an essential role in our nation’s security. Despite our hard work under some of the most stressful and dangerous conditions, we are treated like second-class employees compared to other federal workers. Thanks to AFGE, a new bill introduced in Congress could finally give us the pay and rights we deserve.

5 things you should know about the new Title 5 Bill:

Collective Bargaining Vote, End of FebPrint

AFGE NEVADATo All Bargaining Unit Employees,


AFGE Council 100 returned to the Bargaining table on January 19, 2016 to January 20, 2016 in an attempt to tweak some unfinished clauses in the New Contract before we take it to Arbitration. On the Council 100’s team was Lead Negotiator AFGE Attorney Chad Harris, District NVP Joe Flynn, Council 100 President Hydrick Thomas, Region 2 VP Mac Johnson, Region 1 VP Stacy Bodtmann and Executive Vice President Alan Jackimowicz. TSA’s Team was led by FSD Jim Spriggs, 2 Attorneys and 1 Labor Management Specialist.

I wish we could say we have good news, but it was more of the same from TSA. More take-a-ways, and TSA thought, that they could buy your vote, by throwing a pair of Cargo Pants on the table. I would rather wear TSA issued pants with holes in them, then attempt to sell you a Contract, that has more take-a-ways than good quality gains for our workers. This is typical TSA arrogance!!!

Allow me to briefly tell you what TSA Management is proposing.

1.6% Pay Raise for 2017-- That’s It!?Print


Don’t spend it all at once folks.

After three years of pay freezes, five years of locality pay freezes, a week of unpaid sequestration furloughs, cuts to retirement, and countless attempts to erode workers’ voice at work, federal employees were offered a 1.6% pay raise in 2017. So, thanks, I guess?

1.3% Pay Increase Locked In as Congress Approves 2016 BudgetPrint


December 18, 2015

The House and Senate this week approved a funding package that keeps the federal government funded through September, 2016. The $1.1 trillion year-end funding bill covers everything from agency funding to a lifetime health care program for 9/11 first responders. It also has a few safeguards to protect federal employees.

Thanks to the leadership of Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland, who is also vice chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, the funding bill provides 10-year credit-monitoring services and $5 million in identity theft insurance to federal employees and other victims of data breaches. The Office of Personnel Management currently provides only three years of credit monitoring and $1 million in insurance.

Mikulski also made sure no provision was included in the bill to block federal employees’ 1.3% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) proposed by the White House.

Excusing Employees for Half a Day on December 24, 2015Print

DHS/TSAIn accordance with the Executive Order signed by President Obama on December 11, 2015, non-emergency TSA employees will be excused from duty for the last half of the workday on Thursday, December 24, 2015.

Because of the critical nature of our mission, most of our employees will be required to work. However, if an employee is not excused from duty because his or her services are required, he or she will receive holiday premium pay (if applicable) for non-overtime work performed during the half-day holiday.

For complete pay and leave administration instructions for how the Executive Order affects you, read December 24, 2015, Half-day Holiday Pay and Leave Administration Guidance.

Are Shutdown Furloughs Around the Corner?Print


To avoid a government shutdown, the House and Senate last week passed a short-term bill to fund the government until Dec. 16 as lawmakers continue to work to come to an agreement on a long-term $1.1 trillion funding package.

The short-term bill, known as a continuing resolution, funds the government at 2015 levels.

Contract Negotiations are Over. Here's What We're Doing Now.Print

TSA Council

As of 12:01 am on December 9, the contract negotiations between the AFGE Council 100 bargaining team and TSA ended without a fully agreed upon contract. The bargaining team, led by AFGE Chief Negotiator Chad Harris and District 4 National Vice President Joe Flynn, refused to settle for a union contract that was anything less than a new, improved contract for all TSA Officers.

The bargaining team was aware of the fact that TSA had been planning for these negotiations back on December 31, 2014, with the now infamous Second Pistole Determination. It was quite evident that TSA planned to negotiate a new contract with multiple "take backs" on rights we had gained in the first contract. The Second Pistole Determination set the tone when TSA tried to negate almost every victory AFGE received in arbitration, along with granting TSA the authority to dismiss cases.
