It is the only labor union that has united various operating crafts while protecting craft autonomy and has the most effective voice among transportation unions before state legislatures and the U.S. Congress.

The vast majority of SMART’s railroad members work in the U.S. freight rail industry, moving goods and materials across the nation, 24 hours a day and seven days a week in the variety of crafts.
