BLET purchases new headquarters building

CLEVELAND, March 20 — The National Division of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen has purchased a new headquarters building in the Cleveland suburb of Independence, Ohio. The new location fulfills the BLET Bylaws requirement that the National Division headquarters be located in the greater Cleveland area.

The BLET sold its former headquarters, the Standard Building, in July of 2014. A stipulation of the Standard Building sale agreement was that BLET would lease back the space the Brotherhood currently occupies for a minimum of two years and a maximum of three years to relocate.

“This is an exciting time for our Brotherhood,” BLET National President Dennis R. Pierce said. “Work will begin immediately to fit the new property to our operations, and once completed, our new headquarters location will provide ample room for our National Division officers and staff in a more modern work environment. We will also use this opportunity to continue and expand our state-of-the-art Education and Training Center.”

More information on the new BLET headquarters building will be made available as developments warrant.
