Was informed today by the union local chairman here in MN that if we do strike the carrier can remove us from our lodging if they choose to just want to confirm this with local. If they remove us will we be returned to home or able to come back after the union rolls over or congress steps in

Does the union still put out anything that updates the progress of claims. Used to see a packet of papers in the crew rooms that somewhat updated the status of filed claims like when they been advanced to the general chairman and so on. I have’t seen one of these around in a long time wondering if they still put them out or not

Does anyone know what the range of our hand held radios is supposed to be mine seems to be around 8000-9000 feet after that it’s a roll of the dice. I know I’m not the only one that’s had to have tower relay while shoving 25th as I’ve heard others having the same issue with these land barges trying to shove in. with these monster trains that are 10000 feet plus and 10000 plus tons and having someone relay car counts that’s doing a hundred other things doesn’t seem to be all that safe.

So they recalled what looks like enough to fill awrr board but placed us all on training board I’m guessing to use it as a second extra board this weekend and Fourth of July weekend for when everyone marks off. Can they call off a training board to work alone

I’ve noticed a couple times over the last couple weeks CMS has called conductors to cover jobs in Belvidere that are supposed to be Footboard qualified. Is anything being said about this. Joe Ballou I’m sure told the caller they don’t need to be

What if anything is the “Union” doing to get awrr and furloughed guys back to work. Cause I for one am glad that I’ve been paying 183 or what ever a month for nothing except getting people that have been fired multiple times their jobs back. They work hard for those that screw up but not for those that show up and go to work. We pay the highest Union dues for what. I was in multiple other Unions prior paid nearly a quarter of what we pay UTU 577. Nation average for Union dues is 2 hour wages per month. At least with other unions when you get laid off you call tell them your out of work and they assist in finding you work.
