Dozens of TSA Workers at Honolulu Airport Fired for Not Screening Checked Bags

September 18, 2011

By Associated Press,

HONOLULU — Dozens of employees at Honolulu’s airport were fired or suspended after an investigation found workers did not screen checked bags for explosives, the Transportation Security Administration said Friday.

The firings and suspensions amounted to the single largest personnel action for misconduct in the federal agency’s history. It said in a statement that 28 workers were “removed,” 15 suspended, and three resigned or retired. The cases of two other employees were still being decided.

The agency began an investigation at the end of last year after two Honolulu employees told officials that thousands of bags weren’t checked properly or screened for traces of explosives.

The probe, which included interviews with more than 100 employees, determined that some checked bags during one shift at the airport were not properly screened.
