UTU, TCU join OneRail coalition


The United Transportation Union and Transportation Communications Union recently joined the OneRail coalition. The unions collectively represent more than 175,000 railroad, bus, trucking, air and transit workers in the United States and Canada.

Coalition members include the American Public Transportation Association; American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association; Amtrak; Association of American Railroads; National Association of Railroad Passengers; Natural Resources Defense Council; National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association; Railway Supply Institute; States for Passenger Rail Coalition; and Surface Transportation Policy Partnership.

OneRail promotes additional investment in the nation’s rail infrastructure to create jobs, eliminate chokepoints, increase freight- and passenger-rail traffic, and reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.
