CVTA Joins Task Force Movement to Expand the Trucking Workforce

Jun 25, 2024

 Last week, CVTA Board Member Jerome Redmond and Executive Director Andrew Poliakoff attended a meeting with Task Force Movement (TFM), hosted at the White House Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Task Force Movement is a group of strong advocates that work to create pathways to careers in the trucking, healthcare and cybersecurity industries for our nation’s veterans. The Task Force came together in response to the Trucking Action Plan to Strengthen America’s Trucking Workforce.

CVTA joined Patrick Nemons from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in highlighting opportunities to grow the trucking workforce and expand options for veterans.

Acting in his role as Senior Policy Advisor on TFM, Jerome Redmond looks forward to sharing insights on issues critical to meeting this goal, like the enforcement of Entry-Level Driver Training standards, optimization of WIOA funding, and increases in grant programs to help future drivers access professional training.
