Cummings Issues Statement in Response

to the Office of Special Counsel

Obtaining Settlements for Three TSA Whistleblowers

Washington, D.C. (May 23, 2018)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement in response to the Office of Special Counsel announcing it resolved three whistleblower retaliation cases in which Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) supervisory employees were reassigned after making disclosures related to airport operations and safety:

“Today’s settlements are a victory for these whistleblowers and other whistleblowers throughout the federal government who rely on the Office of Special Counsel to protect their rights.  We on the Oversight Committee have been investigating problems at the TSA for several years, and it is clear that the agency needs major reforms to protect its employees and the public they are sworn to protect.”
