About BLET Education and Training
The Education and Training Department of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen traces its formal roots to 1991, when the Constitution and Bylaws of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers was amended to provide for a department of Education & Training at the national level.
Today’s BLET Bylaws carries that same mandate, and stipulates that a Vice President or the National Secretary-Treasurer would be appointed by the President to head the department.
SECTION 7(g) BYLAWS
The E&T Department shall provide training to Officers and Members at all levels of the Brotherhood in order that they may: “… improve their performance in their interactions within the union; between the union and management; between the union and the public; between the union and the various federal, state and local governments; and with all other labor movements and activities.”
