Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen National President Dennis R. Pierce announced that preparations are under way to poll members to authorize a strike in the event one becomes necessary to attain the organization’s bargaining goals.

“Now is the time for all BLET members to deliver a unified message to the carriers that we will not stand for shifting health care costs to the backs of older and sick workers and families with children, and that our wage increases should better reflect our members’ contributions to the industry’srecord profits,” said Pierce.
