Commuter Ops

Public·87 members

Memorandum of Understanding for temporary operations on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. The Understanding provides the following to our members in commuter operations:

  • Annulled Jobs-paid normal earnings of assignment

  • New one-day assignments-Passenger Conductor Rate of Pay for assignments worked plus 2 hours. The 2 hour payment is in addition to guarantee.

  • Lost earnings to any regular Conductor, Collector, or Swing Collector who is placed in FR due to working either date.

It should be noted that the BLE agreement does not include any additional compensation for their members. We encouraged UP to extend the same 2 hour payment to the BLE so our Brothers and Sisters working under their agreement can receive the same pay as the trainmen will be receiving. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact the office.
