History of the United Transportation Union

In 1968 exploratory talks among the four brotherhoods’ interested in forming one transportation
union proved fruitful and plans were formulated for merging of the four operation unions into a
single organization to represent all four operating crafts.

In August of 1968, the union presidents announced that after nine months of planning, a tentative
agreement had been reached on all phases of unity. It was further announced that the name of the
new organization would be the United Transportation Union and the target date for establishing
the UTU was Jan. 1, 1969.

In Chicago on Dec. 10, 1968, the tabulation of the voting revealed an overwhelming desire by the
members of the four crafts to merge into a single union, and the United Transportation Union
came into existence on Jan. 1, 1969.
