BLET welcomes Amit Bose as new Administrator of FRA

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, January 13 On January 12, 2022, the U.S. Senate confirmed Amit Bose to serve as Administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). Dennis R. Pierce, National President of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET), issued the following statement:

On behalf of the BLET, I congratulate Amit Bose on his confirmation by the United States Senate and have every confidence that his leadership will benefit the men and women who work in the railroad industry. Administrator Bose recognizes the important contributions that railroad workers make each and every day to the freight and passenger/commuter rail industries, and he has displayed respect for the vital role that railroad unions play as a voice for the rights of our members and the safety of our industry. I look forward to working with Administrator Bose and the FRA on issues of critical importance to the BLET and its members.
