The BLE's success in fending off the UTU's attempted raid is due largely in part to support from the AFL-CIO and its affiliates. The BLE wishes to thank all of Rail Labor, AFL-CIO Executive Vice-President Linda Chavez-Thompson, AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Richard L. Trumka, AFL-CIO President John J. Sweeney, all AFL-CIO affiliates, and the Transportation Trades Department for their support.
