AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka released the following statement regarding attempts to privatize Orlando TSA workers:
The AFL-CIO fully supports the efforts of AFGE as they fight the harmful privatization efforts against TSA workers at Orlando International Airport. The training and dedication of our union brothers and sisters keep millions of airline passengers safe. Privatization efforts across the country put people's safety in jeopardy and are nothing more than schemes to line the pockets of greedy corporations at the expense of working people.
