I'm curious what PASS's membership percentage is across the force. 6,000 plus ATSSs in the field, how many of those are dues paying members?

Was that a tumbleweed rolling past? Cricket, cricket. No Union champs here?

There are plenty of NATCA boosters here. My guess is that there aren't enough ATSS folks here to respond.

Good idea, but what's wrong with checking in here? Most questions on here could be answered with "call them and ask" if you want to go that route...

I was told as of 1/5/2016 it was 47% by the president of PASS during my new hire orientation. I joined... I think 10 people from my new hire class of 36 joined.

I am in the course right now that started on 1/7/2016. I joined and I think about 5 other people joined from class. So, yeah, not great numbers.

We had quite a few from my work site leave the union this year. Even had a SSC PASS rep resign. I never joined, but the consensus seems to be that they don't do enough for us.

Have you read the "red book"? If you don't think that's enough you should follow the " white book", then get back to me and let me know what you think.

Uh, red book doesn't apply to AF dude, neither did white book. Thats an ATC thing. Read before you comment, its right there in the posts. PASS, not NATCA.

This is Tech Ops. I think their book is purple.
I'm in ATC and even I haven't read the red-book so there's slim chance Tech Ops knows what's in there.
