AWRY Clarification. If you are on your assigned days to protect, CMS can call you at their discretion. If they don't call you for a transfer, but hold out until 2nd shift for a yard job, that doesn't mean that you are now the Switchman on the assignment. You are assigned to the Forman and stay with the Forman. If you are ordered to separate from your Forman to line switches, protect points, etc. We need to know about it. Name, date, assignment worked, and employee ordering you to be essentially an extra set of hands.
