The National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC) is paying close attention to the COVID-19 outbreak spanning the globe. Our primary objective is to prioritize safety in all that we do and urge all NRC members and their families to take appropriate actions to protect their employees, their families and the public community.
The NRC joins with other U.S. associations, companies, and agencies in supporting the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) safety recommendations, found here. For more information on how employers should respond to the outbreak, please click here.
Even during these concerning times, the NRC is aware that our members have a continuing and crucial responsibility to help construct our nation’s railroads and rail-transit lines. We also know the importance of a seamless rail network to the public health of this nation. We are in habitual contact with the FRA on this matter and will relay any pertinent information that we receive.
Thank you for your ongoing work to keep our economy moving and our people safe. We urge you to practice safety in all you do and to take all recommended protective measures so together we can help flatten the curve.
“The NRC, aside from being the voice and representation of the railroad contracting industry, provides many great benefits to its members. One such benefit is our annual tuition assistance or Scholarship program. Since 2013, the NRC has offered this program to eligible children and grandchildren of NRC member companies. This past year, we were able to provide assistance to (6) students totaling $33,000. It is an honor to be a part of this and is truly gratifying to be able to invest in the futures of these promising students and to consistently hear how much they appreciate it.”
