Teamsters Canada is backing two petitions demanding justice for rail workers. The petitions were launched by some of the families whose loved ones died while working for CN and CP.
The first petition aims to protect Transportation Safety Board (TSB) investigators when speaking out about corporate criminal negligence.
The second petition is to demand an investigation into corporate rail policing. Yes, that’s right, rail companies like CP and CN are fully authorized to police themselves and their property. The idea of a CP and CN criminally investigating themselves is absurd – they would never charge themselves with anything!
After countless deaths, derailments, and injuries, the need for reform has never been greater.
