APA BACKS PILOTS REFUSAL TO USE FULL BODY SCANNERS

Mike Cleary, president of the US Airline Pilots Association has advised his members not to go through full body scanners.

The union leader says pilots shouldn’t submit to the repeated doses of radiation, rather opting for pat-down search by security personnel instead. However, the Transport Security Authority has recently changed its hand-search policies to allow the use of open hands and fingers to search individuals rather than the back of their hands.

Cleary says: “Let’s be perfectly clear: the TSA procedures we have outlined above are blatantly unacceptable as a long-term solution. Although an immediate solution cannot be guaranteed, I can promise you that your union will not rest until all US airline pilots have a way to reach their workplace … the aircraft … without submitting ourselves to the will of a TSO behind closed doors.”
