Dulles security officials to get excused absences after TSA reconsiders
By The Post's Federal Diary columnist Joe Davidson:
The Transportation Security Administration has reversed itself and decided not to mark as AWOL any Dulles International Airport security screeners who did not work when District area federal offices were closed during the recent snow emergency, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) announced Wednesday.
The decision follows a Federal Diary report about complaints from Dulles transportation security officers. In contrast, National and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall airports implemented leave policies that appeared apparently were more reasonable for their screeners.
“I am pleased that TSA has taken the steps necessary to correct this unfair designation and will increase communication with its workforce to ensure this situation does not occur again,” Thompson said.
