NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF FIREMEN & OILERS’ PRESIDENT DEAN DEVITA ISSUES A STATEMENT ABOUT THE TRAGIC EVENTS AT VALLEY TRANSPORTATION RAIL YARD
“The NCFO sends our condolences to the families, co-workers and friends of the men and women who lost their lives due to an act of violence at the Valley Transportation Rail Yard in San Jose, CA.
We send our solidarity to our labor partners, the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) President John A. Costa as well as the ATU officers, staff and most of all the ATU members.
Every union wants their members to return to their family safe, happy and healthy after they complete their tour of duty. It is heartbreaking that these ATU members will no longer be able to be with their loved ones.
God Bless these brave men and women. God, please protect all workers.”
