SMART, the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, is one of North America’s most dynamic and diverse unions with 203,000 members.The union consists of sheet metal workers, service technicians, bus operators, engineers, conductors, sign workers, welders, production employees and more. SMART is the largest railroad operating union in North America, with more than 500 Transportation locals.

On Thursday SMART Union General Chairperson Roy Davis sent a letter to advise Union Pacific Company that the SMART Union strongly disagrees with the company’s “unilateral” requirement for COVID vaccinations.

SMART demanded an immediate response and demands that Carrier negotiate in good faith.

Agreed, fren. I couldn't believe the shit they pulled with my husband. And honestly, the last (2nd) time he got laid off from there, he went back to his former industry and got happier in general almost overnight. He was always miserable there, now he loves what he does. And he makes a lot more money now. He's better off. At least his boss now appreciates him and shows it. It was through his experience with CSX that I realized why people say you get "railroaded" when you get screwed over - they exemplify that term.
