As we know I've been elected as legislative representative we're prohibited to use your union dues for political issues, we have a PAC fund that covers the gap. Thanks to Mike Willis, he added a link for our members. Legislation has started. A few topics are house bill 85, preventing City, county, municipal or any other political subdivisions the negotiations of Right to work. House bill 244 we know as the two person crew. And the house memorial 7 , recognizing the importance of Amtrak, amongst all other fights and issues. I invite you to help us on the state and national level.

Help Us Help You

Money from the BLET-PAC is used to help in the fight on Capitol Hill for issues that impact your job, your family and your future!

  • Railroad Retirement

  • Amtrak Funding

  • Federal Employers' Liability Act

  • Railroad Security

  • Railroad Safety

Big Railroads spend big money in Washington to influence members of Congress and push their anti-worker plans. They outspend working families by more than 15-1. Through grassroots political action and aggressive lobbying on Capitol Hill and in State Houses and City Halls across America, labor has stopped some of the worst attacks on working people.

Why should you join?

Big Railroads are pushing their agenda harder than ever. That means we have to fight back stronger than ever. Unions cannot just react when important issues arise. We must get in the game early and help set the agenda. BLET-PAC helps elect and retain elected officials who share our concerns.

I Already Pay Union Dues?

Laws prohibit the use of union dues for political purposes. Your voluntary BLET-PAC contribution fills this gap and enables us to help those who share our interests on the state and national level.

I'm Almost Ready to Retire?

BLET-PAC also works for our retired members and their spouses. We're working to protect your interests on matters related to Railroad Retirement, survivor's benefits and other timely issues.

If you already contribute, consider contacting our Secretary/Treasurer to increase your BLE-T PAC contribution. Let's make an effort to be proactive in the effort to support issues that are important to us and our families!
