No. What any person who’s injured or a family of someone who’s worked on the railroad has been injured or, unfortunately, killed, find the best lawyer. And some unions will say you can only choose lawyers that are from our union that’s’ not true. The truth is find the best qualified lawyer for your family and that’s the best way to get protection. Now again, if the system run by the union is clean and not corrupt, union designations can be very good and helpful. But still, if you ask the questions like the BLET has recommended and we’ll have a list of that on our website so people can see them and ask me those questions or anyone else those questions that those are the questions that should be asked of lawyers.
