The General Chairman had a meeting with Metra and UP on the 12th. The up did confirm that they wanted to "get out of the passenger bisiness" and wanted a smooth transition. Throughout the meeting, the UP slipped up by saying that they were not getting an equal share of the funding. Seems like they want more money and possibly changes to Commuter being walled off from freight. But, another meeting has been set for January 20th to get the details of what that means for our membership.
