Safety Task Force

The STF was organized for the purpose of participating in accident investigations conducted by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) with the goal of contributing to both the accident cause-finding phase, and the safety recommendation phase from the view point of locomotive engineers and trainmen.

The term "investigation", as used herein, refers to the accident cause-finding activities, and not the traditional labor-management railroad "investigation".

The STF Does Not Replace Local Chairman

The STF is not a replacement for the grievance or protective role taken by the BLET Local Chairman, or General Committees of Adjustment in relation to railroad accidents. Their function of representing the employees is still intact and very necessary.
