TSA Union Calls for Immediate Radiation Monitoring at Agency
The American Federation of Government Employees, the union for Transportation Security Officers nationwide, today called on TSA to immediately begin a nationwide radiation monitoring program and provide TSOs with dosimeters to measure radiation output at the checkpoints.
“AFGE has long advocated for a comprehensive radiation safety program that includes monitoring employees for exposure over time as well as training and education,” AFGE National President John Gage said. “In light of recent reports that TSA has ordered re-testing of radiation-emitting equipment due to errors found during an internal review, TSA can no longer rely on the previously-reported test data for employee exposure … it is imperative that monitoring of employee exposure be undertaken immediately.”
Lets spend money to duplicate effort - why not?
