Delegates to BMWED Teamsters Take Historic Action At Convention


Delegates of the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes Division convention have elected the first female member of the union’s Executive Board, Staci Moody Gilbert.  Gilbert has been a member of the BMWED for more than 20 years and is currently the chairwoman of the Burlington System Division.  This is the first time in the union’s 127-year history that a woman has been elected to the board.

“Our delegates, who come from all over the country, gave Sister Gilbert a strong vote and we are proud to have her join the Board,” said Fred Simpson, the President of the BMWED.  Simpson was re-elected for a four-year term today.
