Under the Large Aircraft Security Program, the US Government will have to search your plane before every flight. The TSA will know how often you fly, where you fly, and who goes with you. And yes you have to pay for it. $50 a flight.

Washington (CNN) — The runoff vote to determine which union will represent the 40,000-plus airport screeners will begin May 23, the Federal Labor Relations Authority said Thursday.

The election will be conducted over a four-week period ending on June 21. The votes will be tallied and announced on June 23, the agency said.

In the initial six-week voting process, neither union seeking to represent the transportation security officers received a majority.

The American Federation of Government Employees received 8,369 votes and the National Treasury Employees Union received 8,095, while workers cast 3,111 votes to reject a union, according to unofficial results released by the Labor Relations Authority on Wednesday.

The choice of no union representation will not appear on the ballot for the runoff, so a simple majority will decide the winner.

Senator Rockerfeller’s gonna be upset…  seems I remember Mr. Pistole telling him and his committee that he was against unionization of TSA employees.  So much for truth on the Hill.

Wonder what else he was saying just to get confirmed?
