"Safe Rails Secure America" campaign rolls on

Rail Conference members continue to subit key security information on U.S. rail operations

The Teamsters Rail Conference is continuing its "Safe Rails Secure America" campaign, which is designed to obtain firsthand information about the true condition of safety and security along our nation's railroads.

The data is still being collected and thus far has provided important information to arm the Rail Conference in addressing dangerous practices by the carriers and in communicating our concerns to the general public and federal authorities.

Members are encouraged to keep up the good work and continue submitting the Safe Rails Secure America forms .

"These forms are providing valuable insight into the true state of safety and security," BLET National President Don Hahs said. "The security of America's railroad infrastructure - bridges, tunnels, tracks and rolling eqiupment - is of the utmost importance to our nation's citizens and our national economic well being. I ask that all BLET members continue using the Safe Rails Secure America forms to provide first hand information about unsecure conditions or suspicious activity on the railroad. With your help, we will make a difference."

If you are a BLET member, feel free to use this form and fill it out. After you fill it out, please return the form to your local chairman.

The form is available at: http://www.ble-t.org/pr/pdf/saferailspad.pdf
