BLET/IBT conducts collective bargaining survey

In the coming months the BLET/Teamster Rail Conference will begin coordinated national bargaining with the nation's railroads. In order to best represent your interests, this campaign will be member driven and will reflect the desires and priorities of our members whose day-to-day hard work ensures the safe transport of rail freight throughout the United States.

For this campaign to succeed at the highest level, your Union needs member input as we prepare for the many difficult issues that lie ahead over the next several months, everything from determining adequate pay and compensation improvements to addressing new technology. Bargaining with Class I railroads is never easy and your contributions are even more important to making this campaign work.

You will receive a membership survey in the mail in the next few days. Please take a few moments to fill out and return the survey to the IBT Rail Conference no later than July 30.
