ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

The Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen was founded on December 1, 1873, at Port Jervis, New York, to provide mutual support for railroad firemen. The Brotherhood initially emphasized insurance, but by the late nineteenth century had branched out into labor-management relations.
At the turn of the century, the organization changed its name to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen (BLFE) after permitting engineers to join its ranks. In 1969, the union merged with the Order of Railway Conductors and Brakemen, the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, and the Switchmen's Union of North America to form the United Transportation Union.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

Bulletins, correspondence, convention proceedings, arbitration, grievance, and subject files, meeting minutes, union publications, and ephemera relating to the BLFE, labor relations in the railroad industry in the United States, and railroad labor issues from the late 19th through the mid-20th centuries.
Among the most significant topics covered in the collection are labor disputes, working conditions, and strikes in the railroad industry; railroad law and legislation, particularly at the state level; and black employees in the railroad industry.
