The unionization of the Firstline KC Screeners has made history since the Bush administration has prohibited collective bargaining rights for the 45,000 plus federal screeners nationwide. The only two airports to have unionized screeners is San Francisco and KC Airport which are one of six privately run airports.

170 Private Screeners working at Rochester Airport for McNeil Security will be voting to unionize with the International Union, Security, Police, Fire, Professionals of America SPFPA on May 24th.

Steve Maritas SPFPA Organizing Director has stated that the KC Screeners working for Firstline Transportation had their voices heard today, the word of the day was RESPECT!" The KC screeners worked long and hard for this victory and the SPFPA will continue the fight to gain the wages, benefits and RESPECT they deserve.
