The services of the National Mediation Board (NMB) were invoked by the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers & Helpers (IBB&B) on March 13, 2002, to investigate and determine who may represent for the purposes of the Railway Labor Act, as provided by Section 2, Ninth, thereof, personnel described as "Track Welders and Helpers," employees of Wisconsin Central Transportation Corporation.
At the time this application was received, these employees were not represented by any organization or individual.

On the basis of this letter of withdrawal, NMB File No. CR-6749 is converted to NMB Case No. R-6886 and the NMB hereby dismisses and closes its file in this matter.
