IBT Strongly Rejects TSA’s New Proposed Rules-Sign Online Petition

TSA1Help is needed regarding a very important issue involving all cabin crew and flight deck employees, especially our Teamsters Flight Attendants and Pilots as well as the general flying public. Please encourage family and friends to sign online petition.

These new proposed rules for allowing items such as small knives, 2 golf clubs, hockey sticks, small baseball bats, lacrosse nets, etc. through TSA security and onto the aircraft. TSA never consulted any of the Flight deckor cabin crew member Unions to review the changes before announcing changes due April 25th. You can go online and find the actual changes. Not only is this a slap in the face of flight crews it opens the traveling public to potential attacks by fellow passengers and much longer delays at security investigating the size of the knives!! 

We all need to remember that the 911 attacks were started in the cabin with box cutters. Why do we want to expose ourselves to those potentials again?
