About our Organization
BLET Arizona State Legislative Board
The BLET Arizona State Legislative Board consists of five divisions representing Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen operating on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) and Union Pacific (UPRR) railroads. We are a unit of the National Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen which is part of the Teamsters Rail Conference, International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen exists to promote and protect the rights, interests, and safety of its members through solidarity, aggressive representation, and education.
It is the vision of the Brotherhood Of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen to be at the forefront of the labor movement as the result of grassroots involvement, expanding membership, and a cohesiveness among the engineer and trainman crafts and with other unions.
It will be well known for its excellence in education, communication, political action and strategic planning. It will be a democratic organization with deeply held values and ideals that advance the working conditions, wages, benefits, job security, and quality of life for its present and future members and their families.
