UTU, FRA say 'no safety problem' with remotes
The Federal Railroad Administration, issued a statement emphasizing the safety of remote control operations on March 11.
The statement was promptly reproduced in a prominent location on the UTU website. The UTU headline read, "FRA finds no safety problem with remotes."
The fact that the UTU posted the FRA's statement on its website so quickly after it was issued - and in such a prominent location - leads one to conclude that the UTU must agree with the FRA's position.
