Transportation Trades Department of the AFL-CIO President Greg Regan joined the America’s Work Force Union Podcast to discuss the U.S. Senate’s recent confirmation of Amit Bose as Administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).

Regan described Bose as a smart choice for the position. The biggest frustration is how long the confirmation took — over a year, he said. Right wing politicians who claim President Biden has not done enough to alleviate supply chain issues should actually blame themselves after failing to confirm this position faster, he added.

Regan also talked about the Transportation Trades Department’s new affiliations with the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET), the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes (BMWED) and the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT).
