TWO DIVISION 692 (ROSEVILLE) BROTHERS KILLED WHILE DEADHEADING IN A TAXI

Brothers,

I was just informed by Our 1st Vice General Chairman that he lost two of his members this morning. The Engineer and Conductor were both killed while DH in a non company taxi. the frustrating part of this is this could all be avoided if UP used RAILROAD employees or clerks to drive us to and from our trains. or they would pay a livable wage to our contracted drivers.

Taxis are becoming a frequent mode of transporting crews…but who is monitoring their work /rest cycles?
