BLE conducts informational seminars on proposed merger

CLEVELAND, August 9 -- The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers will hold a series of informational seminars to answer membership questions regarding its proposed merger with the United Transportation Union.

The meetings will be held at various points across the country in an effort to allow as many BLE members as possible to participate in the interactive seminars, which will be conducted by members of the BLE National Mobilization Team, Special Representatives and/or International Officers.

Part of the seminar will include a Power Point presentation which recaps the major events of the past three and a half years, explains key portions of both the Unification Agreement and constitution of the proposed new union, and summarizes the structure and operation of the proposed merged union.

A meeting will be held tonight at 7 p.m. in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. See schedule below for details
