The Transportation Communications Union (TCU/IAM) and IAM District 19, which combined represent tens of thousands of railroad workers, are charter members of the IAM Rail Division and remain separate entities with the same current authority over all Local Lodges within their jurisdiction.

The IAM Rail Division is a fulfillment of the 2012 merger agreement between TCU/IAM and the IAM, which clearly stated that both parties would create a Rail Division comprised of TCU/IAM and IAM District 19. The creation of this division makes the IAM a powerhouse in the rail sector and encourages additional growth.

The Transportation Communications Union/IAM represents approximately 46,000 members in the U.S., most employed in the railroad industry. In 2012 TCU affiliated with the IAM.

Individually we are people from many different backgrounds, doing many different jobs. We are clerks, carmen, auto technicians, computer programmers, skycaps, and redcaps, on-board service workers, secretaries, supervisors, government workers, truck drivers, accountants, yardmasters, inter-modal workers, police officers, reservations agents, transit workers, and more.

Together we form a diverse alliance. However different we are as individuals, we share some hopes in common. We want what most people want from life — A good job with good pay and benefits. Respect. Dignity. Peace. Prosperity.  That’s what TCU is all about. Working together through the Union we know we can achieve our common objectives more effectively.  TCU members set the pace and direction of all the Union’s activities. And the Union’s strength will always be in direct proportion to the degree of participation by its members.

The National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) is a national union representing approximately 110,000 blue and white collar government workers across the United States. Ratifying its constitution on September 17, 1917, NFFE was the first union to represent federal employees.

NFFE locals are spread throughout the United States and the world: from Florida to Alaska, Puerto Rico to Hawaii, and most everywhere in between, NFFE fights for the rights of federal employees both home and abroad. Affiliated with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) AFL-CIO, NFFE and IAM work together to ensure that America’s civil servants get the respect they have earned.

Our mission is to advance the social and economic welfare and education of federal workers through our continued work in organizing units of federal employees, representing their interests through collective bargaining, lobbying for legislative action, fighting for better working conditions, and promoting labor-management partnerships in agency decision-making.
