AFA-CWA President Veda Shook talks about TSA's new, dangerous knife policy.
The Flight Attendants Union Coalition, representing nearly 90,000 Flight Attendants at carriers nationwide, condemned the Transportation Security Administration's recent decision to allow knives and other dangerous objects into the aircraft cabin, relaxing a more than decade-long ban.
"Flight Attendants will not stand silently by as knives are re-introduced to the aircraft cabin," AFA-CWA President Veda Shook told NBC World News Tonight with Brian Williams.
The coalition called it a "poor and shortsighted decision." Flight Attendants serve as the last line of defense in aviation security — responsible for ensuring the safety, health and security of the passengers in our care.
