The Transportation Security Administration has reached an agreement with the American Federation of Government Employees on a union contract covering 45,000 security officers. The deal, which must be approved by members, is the first for the federal agency, The Washington Post reported.

The agreement includes a new performance evaluation system, an increase in the clothing allowance, and linking shifts and vacations to seniority.

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., chairman of the Homeland Security transportation security subcommittee, told the Post he remained “concerned that TSA’s collective bargaining agreement may impact security operations and further insulate its bloated workforce and bureaucracy from transforming into a smarter and leaner organization.”
