    Default Teamsters to train members On First Observer program

    TheTrucker.com - America's Trucking Newspaper
    "OKLAHOMA CITY ó Teamster members from across the Oklahoma and parts of Texas, Arkansas and Missouri will take part in training to become instructors in a transportation security program sponsored by the Transportation Security Administration on April 18.



    The First Observer program was established to increase the number of professional eyes and ears in the national transportation system to protect our nationís critical infrastructure.



    The Teamsters Union is part of a consortium of partners that have taken on the challenge of training as many people as possible in the program to increase the nationís protection from potential terrorist attacks.



    Oklahoma City was chosen as a central location for the large training in order to coincide with the 15th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred Murrah federal building, the nationís worst case of domestic terrorism prior to 9/11/2001, the union said.



    After the training, the participants will tour the memorial museum in Oklahoma City, place tributes at the memorial and then hold a separate training for approximately 300 members of the Oklahoma City community.



    The Teamsters will also make a commitment to train 1 million First Observers by September 11, 2011.
    "

    Well training a million is one heckuva commitment. Good relationship with the government is good.
