to the new www.tsasandiego.org web site. While our MSN Chat Room
SanDiegoScreeners has served us well over these past 6 months, we
felt it time to move on, to move up…bigger and better.
Our goal here at tsasandiego.org will be the same as our chat room…to
provide you with as much useful information as possible. Information
to educate not only screeners, but also the public at large. We
want to clarify the misconceptions that we do not have, nor can
we join, the Union. We do have one, the American Federation of Government
Employees (AFGE), and yes, we can join AFGE Local 1. Many of us
already have joined. We need to educate the public. How many of
the passengers who flow through or checkpoints on a daily basis
know about the "Opt-Out" issue? It’s been my observation that a
majority of the flying public thinks that we are here to stay, that
their safety will always be in the hands of Federal Security Screeners.
Not only do we need to educate them, but also we need their support
to keep the safety of our nation's skies in the hands of Federal
Screeners. We also need their support in gaining recognition of
our Union, our right to collective bargaining, our right to have
a voice at work!
For those of you who follow the chat room, don’t worry, it will
still be around for a while. We will be moving the "Links" and "Document"
to this site, but we will keep the "chat" active for a while.
This Site, like our Union, is new and growing every day…so expect
changes (lots of them). This is a free site, we do not charge for
it’s use, nor do we sell any advertising. This site is solely maintained
by the donation of its members. I would like to acknowledge VermontPet.com for its contribution
of time and talent in the design and operations of our site, as
well as the design of our logo. I would also like to thank Edgepark
Computer Solutions for the use of its photographic art.
Remember, we live in "America’s Finest City"…let’s keep her that
