Unions to fight back against freight redefining Conductors

The fight to protect the jobs of conductors and promote the safety of both railroad workers and the public just got ugly. Today the National Railway Labor Conference - the lobbying and negotiating group which represents the nation's carriers - filed suit to allow the railroads to "arbitrate" to eliminate traditional conductor's jobs. This is part of the process which has been on the horizon for some time and the reason why the Organizations have been pushing so hard for minimum two person crews. It will be important to rally behind the unions in their effort to block the summary elimination of safety sensitive jobs.
