Statement from ATA President on Protests

Feb 10, 2022

Arlington, Virginia – Today, American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear issued the following statement:

“ATA strongly opposes any protest activities that disrupt public safety and compromise the economic and national security of the United States.

“We held serious concerns about the unintended impact a vaccine mandate would have on our nation’s supply chain and ongoing COVID response efforts, which is why ATA challenged the OSHA rule all the way to the Supreme Court—where we prevailed.

“We’ll continue to advocate on behalf of our members for policies that enable the industry to keep the supply chain moving, and we’ll do so in ways that do not hinder the safe and timely flow of commerce that everybody depends on."
