The Transportation Communications International Union or TCU is the successor to the union formerly known as the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks and includes within it many other organizations, including the Brotherhood of Railway Carmen of America and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters that have merged with it since 1969.

The Transportation Communications International Union represents approximately 46,000 members in the U.S., most employed in the railroad industry. In July 2005, TCU affiliated with the IAM, with full merger to occur no later than January 2012.

Individually they are people from many different backgrounds, doing many different jobs. They 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 they form a diverse alliance. However different they are as individuals, they share some hopes in common. They 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 they know they can achieve their 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.
