I welcome you to the BLET Division 375 website. I hope this will be a valued communication tool within our great Division as well as a comprehensive resource for information on our union and company.

Note that the buttons and links are context sensitive & will change as you navigate throughout the site. The text that is blue & underlined are links to other pages, other sites, and such.

Briefly highlighting the different sections of this website below will guide you in your browsing experience on this website:
Agreements: Here you’ll find agreements (contracts) for engineers, conductors, and engineer trainees. The BLET & IBT constitutions & bylaws are also in this section as well as the decision tables for the Danville District. We’re working to digitize many “side letters” and “letters of understanding or clarification” to the agreements as well as any information that effects us locally.
Forms, Guides & Charts: is an extensive listing of forms, guides, charts, and other useful information frequently requested by BLE&T members. Check this page if you need a form, it’s probably here.
History: A brief history of the BLE&T and the Danville District of Norfolk Southern and Spencer Yard.
NS Resources: Includes assignment matrix, (detailed job listings,) help accessing the NS Employee Resource Center website, maps, personal auto mileage chart, phone numbers, signal lists, track charts, & more.
Our work on this site is far from over. We will be adding resources and information as time permits. It is my personal goal for this site to be one of your best resources for accurate information & problem resolution. Please let me know personally how this site may be better developed to suit the needs of the membership. I welcome your comments, questions & suggestions.
Enjoy your visit to our website,
