"Finally committing to a 21st century rail system is one important step to building an America that works for working people. And there’s no one better to make our case than the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen.
Your union is integrally tied to the story of America. Your legacy is a testament to what makes the labor movement powerful. And above all, you are evidence of the inalienable value of work.
You—like your brothers and sisters who came before you—are in the business of uniting a nation. A network of steel spanning a continent, reaching communities from coast to coast, shrinking the thousands of miles separating families in New York and Los Angeles and Miami and Seattle and everywhere in between."
On Tuesday, August 7, 2018, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka provided words of encouragement and solidarity to delegates gathered at the 52nd Regular Convention of the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen in Boston, Massachusetts. Brother Trumka showed his appreciation for the hardwork provided by Signalmen to ensure our rails are safe 24 hours a day. Brother Trumka reminded the delegates of the strength in unity and encouraged union activism from all members.
