PROTECT, PROMOTE and PRESERVE OUR RAILROAD RETIREMENT ANNUITIES.
The National Association of Retired & Veteran Railway Employees (NARVRE) was organized in 1937. NARVRE’s primary purpose according to their original by- laws is, “for the study of the legislative principles and processes of the Railroad Retirement Act of 1937″, cooperating with retired and active railroad employees on actions affecting these principles. NARVRE has always worked closely with rail labor as well as the railroad industry, and other senior, retiree organizations on legislative proposals that may prove harmful to their membership and demand a unified action. NARVRE’s membership of current and former railway employees gain strength and aid through a mutual association with other supportive groups while promoting the general welfare of retired railroad people in the United States of America.”
Stimulus Relief Aid is desperately needed for Amtrak and rail employees. The Senate took another vacation and has chosen to ignore House passed legislation. A stimulus package is needed now to help American citizens and businesses, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Our mission is to urge Congress to include Amtrak and Amtrak employees in a legislative aid package. NARVRE stands with all rail train service advocates and this latest letter from representative organizations asking Congress to remember that Amtrak is a viable transportation service in America, much the same as the airline industry. Please make another call. Let’s follow-up and contact our Representatives and Senators @ 877-668-3864 or 877-668-3866. Remind Congress not to forget Amtrak in the next relief aid package…!
TCU/IAM, All RAIL STAKEHOLDERS URGE CONGRESS TO PROVIDE AMTRAK, TRANSIT RELIEF: TCU/IAM joined with other groups representing rail passengers in the U.S., Amtrak workers, Commuter and Transit employees, and railway suppliers, to remind Congress not to forget about the other pieces of America’s national intercity transportation network: Amtrak and public transit systems.
Consider this an update on our continual work opposing proposals for heavier trucks in the U.S. Congress. NARVRE has an ongoing working relationship with the rail carriers (AAR) and rail labor, of course, as the rail industry stands to lose business if more cargo could be moved on bigger trucks and intermodal truck-rail freight shipping, causing more employee furloughs affecting railroad retirement.
All Amtrak advocates are advising the Senate that we expect them to Act Now.
The House has passed their legislation, and the Senate needs to act.
We regret to announce the passing of NARVRE Area 2 Director JJ Grabner III, age 70. NARVRE offers our sincere condolences to Lauren, their family, and JJ’s many friends. His years of service and many contributions to NARVRE are certainly appreciated. According to information provided by Unit 151, East Liverpool, OH, JJ’s funeral services are private.
