Federal court orders UP to put BLET officers, member back to work

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, June 4 — A federal
judge in El Paso, Texas has ordered Union
Pacific Railroad (UP) to reverse the
unlawful suspensions of a group of six
members of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen
(BLET) — five of whom are elected officers
of Division 192 in El Paso. The judge ruled
that all these union members had been
wrongfully suspended by the UP in
violation of the Railway Labor Act (RLA).
UP had suspended these union members
for a physical altercation at a private union
meeting that was off-duty and completely
off company premises.
