Union Members Feature: Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen
NATCA continues to highlight our union sisters and brothers who are also essential contributors across our nation’s workforce, and also AFL-CIO affiliate unions. Today, we highlight and thank our siblings of the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen (BRS). The BRS was founded in 1901 as a trade union representing railroad employees working in what was then the new craft of signaling. As railroads increasingly turned to the new technology of signal systems to improve the safety and efficiency of their operations, the BRS expanded and eventually grew into a national organization representing the men and women who install and maintain signal systems for most of the nation’s railroads. Read about what BRS is doing to help and support its members in the wake of the global pandemic.
