BLET Members Stand Up for the Right to Vote

December 18, 2009: Just two months after the head of the BLET was arrested for taking a $20,000 bribe, some rail officials are trying to take away the Right to Vote for BLET officials.

Now BLET members are teaming up to protect their Right to Vote. They’ve launched a committee called BLET Members for Democracy.

They’re educating members about how the Right to Vote lets them hold top officials accountable.
