TSA Management at Dulles Drop AWOL Charges against Screeners Who Called in Sick During a Blizzard.

Well I was wondering when this was going to happen. In case some of you may not know, the TSA management at Dulles International Airport decided to mark screeners whom were unable to come to work  during the past two months record breaking snow storm AWOL.  AWOL or absence with out leave is a very serious charge to have against you if you are a screener. If you have this on your record, your TSA “career” is basically over. With this marked against you, a screener will always be passed over for promotions and advancement within the TSA. This is a very piss poor policy as it is never applied across the board for everyone. Management loves to abuse this power as I have seen it abused many times at CVG.

From what I have read it looks like Dulles management is being held accountable for their actions, because they did not follow their own procedures for granting leave (imagine that). All screeners who missed work because of the storm are now being granted leave instead of AWOL.  Other airports should take note.

I’m not sure why but most of  TSA management believe they are untouchable. They feel they can do whatever they want at any given time. They continue to treat screeners as if they are somehow beneath them. They lack the basic managerial skill to figure out a plan for a snow storm that they knew was on the way, so they take out their aggravation on the screeners. These are the same managers who are supposed to make the big decisions in the event of a terrorist attack (makes you feel real safe doesn’t it). Hopefully who ever made the decision to give screeners AWOL was fired. They have no business being in the position they were given.

    It is because most of the Managers within the TSA have no leadership skills. When the TSA was first started back 2002 they were taking people who were managers at fast food chains and making them managers in a federal government organization. You can polish a turd until it shines but it is still a turd!

    I would not trust them to manage a Chucky Cheese. There were only two Managers I respected when I finally quit. Hopefully they can escape before the feces hits the oscillator.

    I used to manage a “fast food” joint and I am in total agreement with Sean. Out of our beauties, I trust maybe 3 or 4. The ones that get on my nerves more than anything are those who are aware they are breaking their own rules, then cover it up when their own asses with their stupid assed local policy, which is totally illegal and see how many people they can roll the bus over. We laugh at them when they go into “reactive” mode, the only mode they are good at.
