The BMWED has teamed up with the BRS, once again creating the Passenger Rail Labor Bargaining Coalition (PRLBC). In past negotiations, our C&S brothers and sisters have shown how coalition bargaining has proven to be an effective means to an end. The partnership between these two engineering department powerhouses brings a united strength that truly benefits our collective body. Together, our organizations are dedicated to negotiating a contract that provides the protections and securities for our membership and serves us through this next round.
