Join us in the fight to defend your hard earned benefits

Thursday, February 23, 2017

By Dennis R. Pierce, BLET National President One of any Unionís primary responsibilities is to negotiate for and defend the benefits that make union jobs the best jobs in our proud country. It is no secret ó as all members should be well aware ó that the railroads are attempting in our national contract negotiations to diminish the quality of our health care benefits. In fact, the primary reason for our national freight contract not being settled is due to your employersí demands that you pick up significantly more of the cost of your health care. You have had no contract to vote on because I have heard loud and clear how you view such a contract; you would never ratify it.
