BLET fights to stop UTU double
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has filed
a lawsuit to halt the United Transportation Union's attempt to implement

nation's railroads. The implementation of this agreement could require BLET
members to pay double dues if they desire to retain their BLET membership
while working in train service.
