Yardmasters

Important Information for Active and Retired Yardmasters

The Railroad Yardmasters of America (RYA), organized Dec. 2, 1918, in response to managerial abuses. The RYA voted in 1985 to affiliate with the UTU (now SMART Transportation Division). SMART TD-represented yardmasters today enjoy autonomy and craft preservation, as well as the protective advantages and strength associated with SMART TD membership.
