Our Position:

We support this bill.
Dear Senator Wicker and Representative Rokita,

On behalf of more than 1.7 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud your recent introduction of the TSA Efficiency and Flexibility Act (S. 1353/H.R. 2507), to add Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers to the list of federal employees statutorily prohibited from collective bargaining, while taking care to ensure their employment rights are duly protected by other, more effective means. [...]

Policymakers have long recognized the damage collective bargaining can do in the public sector, where taxpayers are forced to pay the price for escalating union demands, and dues are funneled back into the political process in a vicious cycle of ever higher spending. By imposing overly restrictive work rules, extreme protections for poorly-performing employees, and deeply divisive contract negotiating procedures, collective bargaining introduces a heavy dose of waste and inefficiency into public service.
