Not only are unionized railroad workers in the United States divided into thirteen unions, but several of these unions have banded together to form other unions. This often makes it more difficult for them to work together for the benefit of their members. Let`s see if we can explain one thing about this confused mess. The union has repeatedly partnered with other railway unions. The Brotherhood of Railway Carmen is a department of the Union of Transport Communications. In 1986, the Brotherhood of Railway Carmen voted in favor of merging with transportation Communications International Union and members of this craft are now considered part of the Carmen division of transportation Communications International Union, which operates according to its own statutes.  The last merger took place on the 1st during which Transportation Communications International Union merged with the International Association of Machinists (IAM). Ratification of the railway agreements with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers is under way. Our TCU railroad division was founded on October 27, 1888 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The first statutes were adopted at the Joint Convention in Topeka, Kansas, in September 1890. Our union has partnered five times with other railway unions. In July 1987, the Transportation Communications International Union (TCU) was renamed with effect from October 1, 1987. The Brotherhood Railway Carmen is a department of the TCU.
The last merger was on January 1, 2012, TCU merged with the International Machinist`s Association and is the railway department of this union. A look back at the first 50 years of history of the La Fraternité Carmen railway line. On November 20, the Presidents of the SMART Transportation Division (SMART-TD) in the railways, represented by the National Committee of the Carrier Conference (NCCC), served to amend the agreements envisaged by SMART-TD with respect to rates of pay, rules and working conditions.

That is not how the law works. The course of moratoriums is not the crew of the sunset. On the contrary, moratoriums prevent any party from notifying a section 6 communication to modify or modify current crew agreements until the last protected employee leaves. Once this is done, a notification under Section 6 can be notified and the long and long process of negotiating the LA for the next generation of agreements can be included. Airlines are trying to replace one of the train cabin crew members with technology and set up a one-person service.
The crew-consist agreements negotiated by SMART-TD and its predecessors over many years stand in the way, but are undermined by these and other actions. The judge, who followed the airlines` arguments and ignored all the opposing poles of the union, found that any dispute over whether the moratoriums prohibited reopening was a small quarrel, and then absurdly concluded that the union had to negotiate while it questioned whether the union should negotiate. . . .
