Dear Rosann,

Unionized rail workers warned of a “ticking time bomb.” They called out mass layoffs and overburdened workers. They watched in horror as safety regulations were blocked.

Now, toxic chemicals from Norfolk Southern’s train derailment could poison an Ohio region for years.

Our most recent video explains how the rail company's reckless greed led to an environmental disaster in a small town that could have been avoided.


For too long, corporations have been given the green light to maximize their bottom lines -- no matter the cost to workers or our communities.

The devastating aftermath of the train derailment in East Palestine is the most recent tragedy caused by corporations putting profits before people.

We must hold companies like Norfolk Southern accountable -- and make sure tragedies like this never happen again.

Thanks for watching,

Robert Reich
