Dear Members,

I am writing to let you know that Congressman Gohmert – your Member of Congress – has signed on as a cosponsor of H.R. 233, the Safe Freight Act, which would require that freight trains are operated by a crew of at least two individuals — a certified engineer and a certified conductor.

This bill is a major legislative priority for our union as it would enhance safety on our nation’s railroads, protect the jobs of our members and support the health of the Railroad Retirement Fund.

Please take a moment to thank Congressman Gohmert for their support by clicking the link below and sending a pre-drafted message via the SMART-TD Legislative Action Center.

Click HERE to thank your Representative for cosponsoring H.R. 233, the Safe Freight Act!

In solidarity,
John Risch
National Legislative Director
