Welcome to the Website for the Burlington System Division!
The Burlington System Division, also known as the "Q" or the "old Q", is part of the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes Division (BMWED), which is itself a Division of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) and a member of the IBT Rail Conference.
Our nickname comes from the name of a former railroad which our System Division represented, the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy (CBQ) Railroad. While the CBQ is now gone, having merged into the current BNSF Railway, our System Division still proudly represents members working on 6 railroads and across 13 states in the Great Plains and Great Lakes regions of our country.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ATTENDED THIS YEAR'S SEMINAR!
Last week our Sisters and Brothers were able to gather a lot of tools to take back to their Lodges, their Gangs, and their families. We had a great Seminar and look forward to seeing all the information and resources we gathered put to work to strengthen our Union and support our families!
If you weren't able to attend our Seminar in person, you can still check out the tools and information we put together by visiting our Seminar page on the Burlington System Division website. Just go to our Seminar webpage to find documents, presentations, videos, and links to tools you can use to navigate your rights, benefits, and paths to building our power as a Brotherhood!
Thanks to all who could come! Now, let's get to work!
