BLET reaches tentative contract with SEPTA

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, June 21 The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has reached a tentative agreement with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) governing rates of pay and benefits for more than 200 locomotive engineers.

On June 18, 2019, ballots, instructions and a synopsis of the agreement were mailed to active members working for SEPTA. Ballots are due by 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, July 16, 2019. Members who have not received a ballot by Tuesday, June 25, should request a replacement by calling the BLET National Division at (216) 241-2630, ext. 222. When connected with the extension, please leave the following information:

your name, address and phone number;
the division to which you belong;
your date of birth; and
the last four digits of your Social Security number.

E-mail requests for ballots will not be accepted because personal information is required to verify eligibility before a ballot can be issued.

I encourage every member at SEPTA who is eligible to study this contract proposal, become educated on the issues, and most importantly vote, BLET National President Dennis R. Pierce said.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is the regional public transportation system for the Philadelphia area, serving approximately 3.9 million people.
