The Feds Can Be Your Worst Nightmare:
Going to the feds to report corporate thugs can backfire. Especially if
you don't initially contact the right department, because your
complaint can get passed around to several departments, and someone in
between will alert the railroad's lobbyist. And the lobbyist will
notify the connected board member, who will then, notify the railroad
Union Pacific is represented one of the largest lobbying firm in
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Felp, LLP....This firm advises the Department
of Labor of employee complaints in the Transportation Department.
The firm played an important role in reducing UP'S Drug Running Scene,
to a substantial reduction of fines and possible jail time.
Jose H. Villarreal serves as a board member for UP. He also works as a
consultant for the named lobbying firm. So, when an employee files a
federal complaint, the Department of Labor seeks advice from the
lobbyist, and the lobbyist notifies the board member (Villarreal), who
will then notify the railroad.
Be advised to know who your company's board of directors are, and
what's their field of expertise is. And most of the time, the road
leads to the Feds.
Has anyone ever wondered why most of the FRA officials are in inactive
status from the railroads they're suppose to be monitoring?
