American High Speed Rail Alliance tabs labor officials for advisory board


Today, the American High Speed Rail Alliance (AHSRA) named three labor officials to its advisory board.

The new members are the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen’s Dan Pickett, Transportation Communications International Union/IAM’s Ron Kloos, and United Transportation Union’s John Risch III.

Last week, AHSRA appointed The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen’s John Tolman to serve on the board.

“Together, they represent so many hardworking American men and women all across this country. We welcome them and their leadership in joining our effort to fight for high-speed rail funding and American jobs,” said former Congressman Al Swift, chairman of the advisory board.
