    • 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.

      CP UPDATE NOVEMBER 2, 2022!

      Burlington System Division Members joined with the General Chairmen of the USD and ARSF, as well as National Division VP Staci Moody-Gilbert and President Tony Cardwell, in negotiations with CP the week of October 31, 2022 in Kansas City, MO. 

      Lodge 1965 member Kevin Rutkowski and Lodge 42 Local Chairman Ivan Ochoa were part of this week's bargaining team, joining General Chairman George Loveland and VGC Tom Steinbrenner. Our members discussed issues pertaining to wages, work rules, health & welfare, and other bargaining topics. While there was no agreement reached so far, this has been the most substantive round of discussion with CP since we reopened negotiations with our Section 6 notice in January. CP and BMWED have scheduled further discussions at the end of the month.
