MONTREAL, April 27 /CNW Telbec/ - "We are all shocked and saddened by the accidental death of our Union Brother Lonnie Plasko, who did not survive a tragic train derailment in Trail, B.C. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Plasko family during this time, as well as our Brothers who were injured in this tragic accident, said Daniel J. Shewchuk, President of Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC)."

At this time the Union will not be making any further detailed statements on the accident or any of the circumstances surrounding it, as there is a full investigation presently being conducted. Our concern right now is ensuring that the Plasko family and the remainder of the local Union members are cared for and supported in every way possible. Our hearts go out to them all, and we are once again reminded that the lives of the workers in the rail industry and their families can very quickly be changed forever.

"We thank the media in advance for respecting the need of the affected family members for privacy in this time of sorrow and the great anxiety felt by all workers."
