Just a few giant corporate monopolies own and operate most of the U.S. railroad network – the largest in the world. Everyone in this country relies on our freight rail system, and the workers who make it run, for transporting our things where they need to go. Yet, this critical piece of our infrastructure is in complete crisis.
While the corporate rail owners rake in record profits, they are perpetrating harmful and toxic derailments, horrible treatment of railroad workers, intensification of the climate crisis, and environmental pollution and injustice in nearby communities. All of us deserve better.
Join us at the Labor Network for Sustainability (LNS) as we stand with railroad workers and frontline communities calling for a rail system that serves the common good, not corporate greed. I’ll see you there!
