      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.

      Next Round of Bargaining

      To simplify where the Burlington System Division is on Section 6 Bargaining on the various railroads we represent, we have made countdown clocks for members to reference. We are encouraging all of our members to attend their lodge meeting to discuss what they would like to see in this next round of bargaining.

      Check your Form BA-6 from the RRB!

      The RRB will be sending out Form BA-6 in the latter part of June. It is extremely important to review these forms for accuracy and file a protest (Form G-70) as soon as possible. If a protest is filed with the RRB, you will need to provide proof of compensation from the Carrier in that month to receive credit or military orders that clearly show service in the disputed month. 

      The G-70 forms are available on the RRB tab within Member Resources menu. 

       JAMES HOFFA MEMORAIL SCHOLARHIPS ANNOUNCED       

      Congratulations to Brother Marty Carlson's son Kaden for being chosen as one of the recipients of the James Hoffa Memorial Scholarship. Good luck to you this year!

      Today, the General Chairmen that represent BMWED members working on BNSF sent a letter to John Cech outlining the impact that sub-contracting out work has on BNSF's workforce. BNSF has been trending upwards on the use of contractors while reducing its own Maintenance of Way BMWED employees.
