If you do not receive a ballot in the next few days, please let me know so I can send you a duplicate. All ballots must be mailed in before Election Day on November 28, 2018 and all envelopes are pre-stamped. We just wanted to stress the importance of voting. We all have the responsibility to exercise our right to turn in that ballot. Lets all make a difference by taking a few minutes out of your time and voice your opinion. You do not like the leadership that is current, so vote and change it. Let your voice be heard!

  -- We are doing a raffle for Cory Castle. Going to raffle a Yeti Soft Cooler Hopper Flip 12, which was donated by one of our members Joe Contreras. Going to be selling the tickets for $10 each and on December 19, 2018 at 9:00 am, we will be drawing the winner. You do not have to be present to win. All proceeds will go to Cory. 

If you would like to buy a ticket, please let me know at 915-433-9157 and if you would like to help selling the tickets, please let me know as well.  

   Once again thank you for your support in helping a fellow railroader brother! 

 -- We just wanted to remind everyone to know their agreement because it will help you in the long run. If you do not know something please ask and we will get you right answer. Remember, if your on thru-freight train, not patching, and finished with your assignment then asked to do other work, it is against our agreement. Please ask for advice, there are plenty of people willing to help. 

 -- We want to thank everyone for taking their time to vote. It is your union and whatever happens in the future, your voice will be heard.
