Welcome Transportation Communication’s Union Local Lodge 643 Members!
The union we call TCU/IAM today took root back in 1899 when on a cold winter’s evening shortly after Christmas, 33 railroad clerks gathered in the back room of Behrens’ cigar shop in Sedalia, Missouri. That night, December 29, they formed Local Lodge Number 1 of a union they named the Order of the Railroad Clerks of America. Since then, men and women from many different crafts have brought their dedication and strength to our union. Our range is extensive and complex, on and off the railroads throughout the transportation industry. But the union still runs on those same simple principles of democracy and full membership participation that it always has.
We support our members and we are here to listen!
