These are the facts. Don`t be misled by misrepresentations. We respect the right of every organization to negotiate in the best interests of its members and BMWE is certainly free to follow any path it deems best, including denying the opportunity to vote on its future. But we also reject any attempt to interfere in the sacred democratic process of those who have reached a voluntary agreement, especially when our elected representatives unanimously approved the proposed agreement and chose to allow our members to vote on their own future. Scardelletti began his railroad career in 1967 as a Yard Clerk at the Central Railroad from New York to Cleveland, OH. In 1971, he was elected local president of local Lodge in 725 and division president in 1973. In 1975, he caught the attention of the late International President Fred Kroll, who appointed him Special Assistant to the Grand Lodge. In 1977, he was elected Vice-Chairman of the Steering Committee of System No. 86. He was elected President General in 1982 and President General in 1984. In 1987, he was elected International Vice President at the TCU National Convention. The official TCU website claims that it all began when seven Carmen met in a stationary carriage in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on October 27, 1888, to form the Brotherhood`s first lodge.

The Carmen was overseached to work seven days a week, 12 hours a day, at $0.10 an hour with no benefits and no replacement. The organization`s early name was brotherhood of railway car repairers of North America. The Brotherhood`s first annual convention was held on September 9, 1890 in Topeka, Kansas. It was there that, for the first time, the delegates drafted their first statement of principle of the Society, explaining that the intention and purpose of the union are correlated with the promotion of friendship, unity and true brotherly love among its members. At the same convention, delegates elected William H. Ronemus as Grand Chief Carman (General President), W.S. Missemer as Vice President Grand Chief Carman, and the first Grand Board of Directors. [5] Based on emergency national and governmental decisions and with the agreement of the Grand Lodge, the nomination session and the ordinary May meeting will be held via secure videoconference using the Zoom platform.

Lodge members who wish to participate in one or both videoconferences should contact lodge President Korey Jones for instructions on how to participate in the meeting(s). Founded in 1937 as the International Brotherhood of Red Caps, the United Transport Services Employees Union represents baggage handlers at train stations. As a largely African-American Union, it was founded with the support of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. In 1940, it changed its name to UTSE and joined the Congress of Industrial Organizations in 1942. The members of UTSE merged with BRAC in 1972 and are also part of their Allied Services division. The Transportation Communications International Union (TCU) succeeds the union, formerly known as the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks, and includes many other organizations, including the Brotherhood of Railway Carmen of America and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, which have merged with it since 1969. The Coordinated Bargaining Group consists of six unions: the American Train Dispatchers Association; the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Exporters (a division of the Railway Conference of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters); the Brotherhood of Railway Signallers; The International Brotherhood of Boiler, Iron, Blacksmith, Counterfeiter and Auxiliary Builders; the National Conference of Firefighters and Oils / SEIU; and the transportation division of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers. TCU is strongly committed to convincing our friends on both sides of the island to reject an amendment that would have reset all Amtrak funds and destroyed thousands of good, middle-class Jobs in Amtrak. . . .
