INDEPENDENCE, July 17 — On May 3, the BLET Advisory Board adopted Rules for the 2018 Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen National Division Officers Election. These rules provide detailed guidelines for compliance with Section 48 of the National Division Rules of the BLET Bylaws, which governs the election of National Division Officers.

Specifically, the Rules establish a timeline for various election-related activities, such as submission of nominating petitions, campaign contribution and expenditure reports, the filing of protests, and how balloting and the election will be conducted.

They also include detailed procedures on campaigning that will provide transparency and fair and equal access to the membership. Lastly, the Rules provide a mechanism for handling all election-related protests and appeals.
