INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, August 25 — On July 27, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) published a crew size proposed rulemaking and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) will be publishing comments that support regulations requiring two-person crews. We believe that having at least two crew members on a train is critical to the safety of employees and the public.
FRA needs to hear from you; we encourage members to post comments from your perspective as a locomotive engineer or conductor. Comments can be made at the link below, and the deadline to submit is September 26, 2022.
When posting comments:
- Be concise.
- Stay focused on your areas of agreement and disagreement.
- Use your experience as your guide. You know rail operations best!
- Be professional and courteous.
