The Teamsters Offer Their Deepest Sympathies to the Families of the Victims

Ottawa, Ontario – The Teamsters Union, which represents Via Rail’s locomotive engineers, would like to express its sincere condolences to the families of the workers who lost their lives in the derailment in Burlington, Ontario this past weekend.

"Our thoughts go out to the families of the locomotive engineers who died in this tragic accident. We would like to express our sincere condolences and support to these families,” declared Teamsters Canada President, Robert Bouvier, and Teamsters Canada Rail Conference President, Rex Beatty.

Several people were also injured in the accident and Teamsters Canada would like to wish everyone a speedy recovery.

According to Mr. Beatty, crossing over from one track to another connecting track can be a normal and frequent procedure in railway operations and it is too soon to speculate on the causes of the accident. The inquiry currently underway will determine the exact circumstances that led to the derailment.

"We will not comment on the hypotheses surrounding the circumstances of the accident until the investigation has been completed," added Mr. Beatty.
