    wonderful, judging by the 'tolerance' exhibited by unions in general, I guess they can grope with impunity, commit other assorted awfuls on the job, then get sent to a rubber room where in they collect a paycheck and wait the 3-5 years to get canned...IF they get canned...:clap2:

    The nation’s 44,000 newly unionized airport screeners have ratified their first-ever collective bargaining agreement, giving them more say in what they wear on the job, the shifts they work and the time off they take, whether they can change from part-time to full-time work or back, their union announced today.

    The American Federation of Government Employees union, which won the right to represent the screeners in an election last year, said its members voted 17,326 to 1,774 in favor of ratifying the first labor deal struck with the Transportation Security Administration since the agency was founded 10 years ago in the wake of 9/11.

    “It feels great,” said Stacy Bodtmann, one of 1,200 screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport, and a member of the union's national negotiating team for its TSA bargaining unit. “It was a good turnout — I wasn’t sure because they gave us limited time to vote — but it was half the workforce, and it was 10-1, a landslide.”
