Executive Statement to Employees Regarding Recent Events
Through the COVID-19 pandemic, TravelCenters of America has supported our professional drivers, fleets and first responders and we have done so with pride and appreciation. We have long taken a leading role in supporting Truckers Against Trafficking and over the course of our 47 year history, we have worked to support people from all walks of life, of all genders and races, and those whose voices are not fully heard.
The events we have all witnessed over the past few weeks have been disturbing. There is much work to do to ensure that equal justice and opportunity are available to all members of our society. As teammates and fellow citizens, we remain committed and will work even harder to support one another in this endeavor, at work and in our communities.
I am sending this note to assure you that we stand committed to diversity and inclusion at TA. We are committed to treating each other and our customers with dignity and respect at all times. As always, thank you for your ongoing commitment to our company and for your support and willingness to improve the positive qualities that define our organization.
Jon Pertchik, CEO
