TSA Officers have a right to an AFGE Representative in a meeting that may lead to discipline, but you must ask for it:
“If this meeting or discussion could lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or to adverse action against me,
I respectfully request that my Union representative, officer or steward be present at this meeting.”
    Do not refuse to attend if denied union representation.
    Tell them that you object and ask for the denial to be put in writing.
    Then call AFGE as soon as you can.

(AFGE Officers and Stewards are not obligated to represent non-members.)
