Indiana Southern Division 270 forms, elects first officers

Members of BLE Division 270 (Washington, Ind.) recently elected their first officers to represent them as employees of the Indiana Southern Railroad after selecting the BLE as their bargaining agent on Sept. 20, 2002, in an election supervised by the National Mediation Board. Prior to that time, the property was non-union.

After electing officers, the Division met with VP Geiger to discuss upcoming contract talks with the Indiana Southern, when they took time out for this photo. The Indiana Southern is a RailAmerica subsidiary.
