Southwest Airlines Provides Meals to Unpaid TSA Employees

Council member Southwest Airlines expressed support for Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) workers at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut by treating them to lunch and dinner.

TSA workers around the country have missed their first paycheck due to the ongoing partial government shutdown. Southwest Airlines offered support to these workers by providing them with a lunch and dinner of chili dogs, as well as other donations from local stores, restaurants, and items prepared by Southwest employees.

Southwest customer service agent Tarsha Moore said, “Just watching the news, and I work with these great men and women every day, it just fell on my heart to do something. So why not, on my day off, I could come in and do hot dogs and chili dogs.”

The NEC thanks Southwest for its thoughtful gesture towards the TSA workers while they continue to provide critical airport safety and security services during this challenging time.
