  • Q&A with Francine Waldron, New York Division peer advocate
    Updated On: Dec 15, 2016
    Peer Advocate Francine Waldron finds volunteering for Operation RedBlock rewarding.

    How does Operation RedBlock support Amtrak as a whole?
    “We are accessible to all Amtrak union employees. We promote a drug- and alcohol-free workplace, and safety is a result of our program.”

    Do you see a greater need for RedBlock now as compared to 10 or 20 years ago?
    “Maybe a little more as there are new designer drugs and higher potencies than in the past.”

    What are some RedBlock techniques or best practices that you have found helpful?
    “One-on-one activities and workplace ‘blitzes.’ It is important to have high-functioning captains and teams in workplace locations who maintain public relations through regular activities.”

    What motivates you to be a RedBlock volunteer?
    “After participating for 25 years in various union-employee roles — team member, division chair, peer trainer and peer advocate — I am still passionate and trying to help. Tolerance, compassion, care and love keep me going.”

    In what ways is a RedBlock volunteer similar to a concerned friend?
    “Actually, we are better than a concerned friend because we take action. We have more knowledge and resources, and we have demonstrated our confidentiality, integrity and responsibility.”
