Welcome to the LMR Page

Labor Management Relations

The Labor Management Relations is the process where Union officials meet with local upper management to discuss issues that are directly impacting TSA Bargaining Unit Employees. As the majority of the Bargaining Unit Employees are Union members, we strive to assure that the Collective Bargaining Agreement is followed, and a balance is reached with new procedures and policies. The minutes of the meetings is posted for your information. Please keep in mind that the LMR meetings are focused on the whole, not individual cases, or personal preferences. Certain information is withheld due to PII or SSI related concerns.
