Organizing Victory!  Today the 11 previously non-union workers at the Illinois Railway, LLC division of OmniTRAX were officially recognized as members of the Burlington System Division of the BMWED-IBT.  While the operating crafts organized into the BLET in 2014, the track department (including signal) and the locomotive shop remained non-union until today.  Please join us in welcoming these new Brothers into the BMWED!
