Steve Bruno is a National Vice President of the 53,500-member Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen. He was elected by acclamation at the BLET's Second National Convention in Reno, Nevada, in October of 2010, and his four-year term of office began on January 1, 2011.

Vice President Bruno is a member of BLET Division 71 in Philadelphia, and is a certified locomotive engineer for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA).

Immediately prior to his election as Vice President, Brother Bruno served the BLET as the Director of Regulatory Affairs. Headquartered in the BLET's National Legislative Office in Washington, D.C., he represented the interests of BLET members in all regulatory matters, including those before the Department of Transportation, National Mediation Board, National Transportation Safety Board and the Transportation Security Administration, among others.

Effective May 1, 2014, Vice President Bruno was appointed National Chairman of the BLET Safety Task Force (STF) by National President Dennis R. Pierce. The STF is the rail industry's first employee-base accident investigation team.

During his years of service to the Brotherhood, he served four terms as General Chairman of the SEPTA General Committee of Adjustment. He also served five terms as local chairman of Division 71. In this capacity, he handled grievance, arbitration and certification processes, bargaining, and local regulatory issues. He also served as a delegate to several BLE/BLET National and International Conventions (1990-2009), and as a delegate to the Teamster Convention in 2006.

Vice President Bruno began his railroad career with SEPTA in August of 1984, and was promoted to locomotive engineer in May 1985. He joined the Brotherhood on September 1, 1985.

He and his wife Ginny married on September 25, 1982. They couple resides in Philadelphia, PA and has two children, Andrea and Sam.

In his spare time, Vice President Bruno enjoys fishing, golf, bicycling and hiking.
