On This Day in 2003
The Northeast of the United States and Canada experienced a massive blackout, which affected 50 million people. Initially concerned that it could be a terrorist attack, it soon became clear that it was the failure of Ohio-based First Energy Corporation to maintain its portion of the electrical grid. In a statement following the costly blackout, the Utility Workers Union of America called on Ohio’s Public Utilities Commission to investigate the industry’s maintenance practices and urged the state legislature to revise its deregulation laws that led to lax standards and mass layoffs of line workers.

   Local 355 member and Professional Transportation, Inc. driver Carlton Sydnor takes his employer's motto "The Right Way is the Safe Way" very seriously. Sydnor, who recently marked his third year with PTI, was recognized by top management officials this week for successfully meeting the requirements of the company's safe-driver program and driving 5,000 hours without incident.

   A transportation company specializing in providing quality, reliable and safe crew transport services for the railroad industry, PTI trains all its drivers in a variety of extensive courses designed to assure client safety. The safe driving award is the second Syndor has received from the company.
