The National Division has updated the website to a more modern design and functionality.
I encourage all of our members to go to ble-t.org to create your account. You will now be able to update your member record (Phone Numbers, Mailing Address, and email) from the profile screen.
If you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I will do my best to assist you in logging in. But you may be referred to the National Division for further assistance if we cannot log you in.
At the next union meeting we will discuss further functionality of the website.
January25, 2022 A North Texas Court awarded the BNSF a Temporary Restraining order baring the BLET from engaging in any self help activities by either a sanctioned or unsanctioned body, until February 8, 2022.
This means that the ill conceived Hi-Viz policy will be implemented at the BNSF’s discretion and we are not to perform any sort of action that could be viewed as organized. There is still another hearing on the 8th of next month. Details to follow as they become available.
