Amtrak Continues Their Outrageous, Extreme Bias Against Their Unions

10.18.07

Editor’s Note: The Amtrack unions have not been able to get decent negotiations with Amtrack ever since the Bush Administration started. They are treating our union brothers and sisters in all those different unions poorly. Organized labor should rally to support our union brothers and sisters at Amtrak! We should contact our members of Congress to pressure Amtrak to negotiate fairly, in good faith and finally give all their workers decent contracts.

Bruce Carlton, Vice President of the Transport Workers Union Local 2015, wrote a stinging letter to Amtrak President Kummant in response to Kummant’s Amtrak Employee Advisory and meetings with Kummant at the negotiation table. It is a very direct letter and gives you an idea of what Kummant is like behind the scenes. The letter can be read here http://www.bmwe3014.org/Latest_news/contract/Amtrak/Carlton_Letter.pdf

You can download a 11 x 7 poster that shows Kummant for what he really is - a union buster, a puppet of the Bush administration. Post it at your favorite location. Click here for the poster Link

8 years without a contract and Kummant thinks we will bend over and take the lousy deals he lays on the table. He underestimates the solidarity and will power of Amtrak workers.

To date the following Amtrak Unions have rejected Amtrak contract offers;
BMWE
BLE
ARASA
Dispatchers
BRS
TWU
Fireman’s Union
IBEW
Machinists Union
