Pac Fed Teamsters Lose Right to Vote

April 2, 2010: In 2006, members in the Pacific Federation of the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes Division (BMWED) in the Teamsters held their first-ever one-member, one-vote election for officers.

Now members are losing the Right to Vote.

In March, Pac Fed officials announced that they are merging with the Unified System Division.

A new election for officers was scheduled for later this year in the Pac Fed. That election is cancelled and members will not get to vote on their new officers.

Instead, delegates will choose the new officers of the division at the Unified’s convention in October.

Members of the Unified can win the Right to Vote if two-thirds of their delegates and at least half of their officers vote to approve the one-member, one-vote elections.
