    • Welcome

      Welcome Brothers and Sisters of BLET Division 94 and guests to our website!

      This site represents the Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen of the BNSF Railway at Gillette, Wyoming. The purpose of this site is to provide our members with up to date information and links to relevant sites.  We hope this site will be a valued communication tool within our Division.  As well as a comprehensive resource of information on our Union and Company.  Much work has been done to make this site user friendly as possible.  This site is far from being complete as we have plenty of content to add in the future and we encourage our members to offer suggestions to make our site even better.

      Members of Division 94 should go to your membership area and fill out the required fields.  In a short time you will have authorization into the member resources area to view confidential information.

      Please remember this website will be used as an aid to our members but we still need to attend our monthly divisional meetings when available.

      Thank You for Visiting.

      Christmas party

      We will co-host a Christmas party for all members and spouses on 12/21/22. This will be a potluck dinner so please  bring a side dish, dessert etc..If you wish to donate some meat prior to the dinner please contact myself or Kevin Knutson, or if you want to bring a main menu item such a ham or turkey that is welcome also. Please let us know in advance so we can prepare accordingly.


      AMENDED EMAIL WITH DATE OF OCTOBER 4 INCLUDED Brothers and Sisters, We are having a joint meeting between the BLE-T and SmartTD to discuss and compile a list of questions to be sent to the National Divisions via the respective General Committees. We will go over each Tentative Agreement, the PEB discussion and resultant award, and how it plays into our tentative agreement.


      Please review the attachment, it shows the timeline of the process. Begin educating yourself with the previous documents and composing some Q&A's for the Division to submit concerning the current proposal. Compare what is offered in the TA and what the PEB recommended. I have previously posted what happened during PEB219 and the result of Congress intervening.

      PEB 250

      This is a synopsis of the arguments made by the PEB and their ruling on such. It is a very lengthy document but it does provide an insight into how the PEB rationalized their decision. I have included this along with the other documents so you can truly educate yourself in order to make a decision based on facts and not misinformation or conjecture you can find on social media.
