TALKING SMART is the podcast of the the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, a diverse union of more than 200,000 members. Each episode, we bring you news, guests and discussions of interest to working families across the United States and Canada.
The October 2021 episode of Talking SMART focused on suicide prevention, substance abuse disorder and all the resources and support available to our members through the SMART Member Assistance Program, or SMART MAP.
In the June 2021 Talking SMART episode, we dug into freight rail issues that affect both the safety of railroad workers and the safety of communities around the country. Our featured guests were SMART Transportation Division Kansas State Legislative Director Ty Dragoo and former Transportation Division Nebraska State Legislative Director Bob Borgeson.
The inaugural episode of the Talking SMART podcast looked at a proposal from Senate Republicans that posed a serious threat to SMART members' retirement security, as well as the overall state of retirement security in America.
