    Machinists to merge with rail workers - By RIP WATSON, BLOOMBERG NEWS
    The merger is an example of unions stretching their membership across industries, said Robert Bruno, a labor relations professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago. He also said the move could block other unions, such as the Teamsters, from trying to add more rail union members.

    "We're joined by our common heritage as rail unions founded more than a century ago and by our growth over the years to include workers throughout the transportation industry," Buffenbarger said in a statement posted on the IAM's Web site.
