Trains carrying flammable materials, explosives, and toxic substances with fewer crew members fatigued from long hours run through our communities daily.At the July meeting, La Coalition – Bomb Trains will hear from Mark Burrows of Chicago, a retired 40-year veteran Canadian Pacific Railroad locomotive engineer who was an active member of SMART-TD and who served as delegate for his union’s international convention. Since 2011, Mark has been working with Railroad Workers United, an organization formed to bring unity to the voices of the many different unions representing railroad workers in order to more effectively fight for improved safety for railroad workers and the public. In his retirement, Mark continues to work to raise public awareness about these issues.
