Transportation Security Administration chief John S. Pistole on Thursday welcomed the controversial unionization of his agency's 47,000 airport screeners.
Airport security screeners pushing for full union rights cleared a significant hurdle Tuesday as the Senate rejected a Republican-authored proposal that would have barred them from collective bargaining.
Parts of the Democratic 110th Congress' legislative agenda are best explained as rewards to loyal patrons in Big Labor, the trial-lawyer lobby and other traditional allies. That much was true regarding the push for "card check," which jettisons the secret union ballot so that labor unions can organize more easily. Now we have something called the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act of 2007, which creates a federalized collective-bargaining system for state and local police, firefighters and other public safety-officers. It is actually more a Politician-Union-Labor Lawyer Cooperation Act than anything for the local fire department.
