Burlington Northern predecessor companies had strong veterans groups which occupied a prominent place with their respective railroads prior to merger. Management could see veterans organizations must be a part of the merger if good employer-employee relationships were to be had. With encouragement and financial support from management, the Burlington Northern Veterans' Association membership currently is very close to 11,000 members which exceeds the total membership before merger. A strongly united veterans association of this size will prove to be a significant help in employer-employee relations.
