TSA Workers to Receive Full Collective Bargaining Rights, Better Pay

By Steve Neavling

The TSA’s 46,000 officers are set to receive full collective bargaining rights and better pay, the Department of Homeland Security announced Thursday. 

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued an order that boosts the rights of TSA officers.

“TSA employees are outstanding public servants who work on the frontlines, including throughout the pandemic, to keep the traveling American public safe,”  Mayorkas said in a news release.  “They deserve the empowerment of collective bargaining and a compensation structure that recognizes and rewards them for their contributions to our safety and security.”

The directive is aimed at improving the morale and retention of TSA employees. 

For a decade, TSA officers have lacked the same protections that are afforded to other unionized government employees. 

President Biden’s administration has called for extending workers’ rights to unionize. 

FBI Investigating Postmaster General DeJoy Over Campaign Fundraising Activity

The FBI has launched an investigation into Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s campaign fundraising activity while he was working in the private sector. 

The Washington Post first reported that FBI agents have interviewed current and former DeJoy and New Breed Logistics employees about their political contributions and have issued a subpoena to DeJoy.

“Mr. DeJoy has learned that the Department of Justice is investigating campaign contributions made by employees who worked for him when he was in the private sector,” DeJoy spokesman Mark Corallo told The Post. “He has always been scrupulous in his adherence to the campaign contribution laws and has never knowingly violated them.”

DeJoy is a prominent GOP fundraiser who was selected by former President Trump to lead the U.S. Postal Service last May.

The Post reported in September that DeJoy, when he led New Breed Logistics from 2000 to 2014, was accused of pressuring employees to donate or attend fundraisers for Republican candidates and then reimbursing the employees using company bonuses.
