Operator death

 And I don’t know what to say or think. These were people who you greeted as you relieved their train or they relieved yours, joked around with in the break rooms, waved to as you passed their train and now they’re dead. I guess this is why I feel as strongly as I do about operator health benefits. This job has higher rates of death and injury than most jobs, and that’s not an abstract concept when it’s someone you know (or several people you know) who dies. I mean, did four of your coworkers die this past year? How are you supposed to react to that?

GOOD QUESTIONS

Well I am not sure if this is fact or not but from my understanding the vedio testimony's that are being recorded and put out on the net by our union is being paid for. My understanding is that ATU757 is paying Susan Stoner's Husban to record these. If this is true it leaves me with a few questions: 1 - Is Susan Stoner's Husban ATU757? 2 - If he isn't how come you are not using a union member? 3 - How much total has ATU757 paid to people for the video productions we currently have? 4 - Are we getting our moneys worth from these productions? 5 - Why pay when there is so much talant with in our membership that would help out on it?
