Transport Workers Union of America RAILROAD DIVISION John Feltz Brian DeLucia Director Railroad Division International Staff-Railroad Division MEMBERSHIP BULLETIN December 8, 2017 RRDMB-12-2017-1 SUBJECT: NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE – NATIONAL (FREIGHT) ————————————————————————————————————————————————
TENTATIVE NATIONAL AGREEMENT SUBJECT TO MEMBERSHIP RATIFICATION
TWU, together with our coalition bargaining partners (TCU/IAM, TCU/IAM-BRC, IAM and IBEW) have reached a Tentative National Agreement (TA) with the National Carriers Conference Committee (NCCC). The TA, subject to membership ratification applies to members employed on Conrail (SAA), CSX and Norfolk Southern.
The tentative agreement comes after 3 years of difficult negotiations, including mediation beginning in November 2015 after our coalition invoked mediation with the National Mediation Board. It tracks a Coordinated Bargaining Group (CBG) TA that has now been ratified by an overwhelming majority of CBG members.
Railroad Division Local Presidents, in concert with Division staff have considered terms of the TA and overwhelmingly recommend ratification.
We are currently developing detailed information and ratification materials that will be distributed over the next several weeks.
As we move forward with preparations for ratification we will be providing updates, including detailed information on the agreement.
