ORLANDO, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Transportation Security Administration officers picketed outside the Orlando International Airport Wednesday to try to sway Orlando Aviation Authority board members away from privatizing OIA’s security operation.

The option to privatize airport security had been under consideration last month, but TSA union officials claim the change would have a negative effect on security.

Union officials said a for-profit company would place financial motivations above safety concerns.

OIA officials said they believe unfriendly TSA employees are upsetting passengers and screening them too slowly.
