Union Wants More COVID-19 Safeguards

A railroad union is pressing Class 1 carriers to begin testing and tracing of all railroad workers for COVID-19.

The Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees Division wants rail companies to take daily temperature checks and implement other stringent safeguards.

The union said in a news release that four BMWED members have died from COVID-19 and hundreds of other employees have been affected by it.

The union made the requests in letters sent to Class 1 CEOs.
