Legislation that was recently reintroduced in the House to give full collective bargaining rights to TSA officers now has companion legislation in the Senate.

Introduced by Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI), S. 944 is companion legislation to a recent House bill that represents a renewed effort to give full collective bargaining rights to Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) that are currently afforded to other Federal workers under Title 5 of the U.S. Code.

The House bill was introduced by Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and was last introduced in the previous session of Congress but failed to advance.
