Starting this week the Service unit will be calling extra Yard Jobs(cx809 xe10) round the clock for up to 4 days, this is temporary so they do not have to advertise the position. from what I understand you will be helping to put trains away. most likely stationed at Aurant yard and Tacking on to the rear and shoving the cuts in. this is because the sewer project will take some of the tracks away at LATC.
Please keep us informed if the window takes more than 4 days. Ive already asked for more bodies on the cx809 xe10 (no commitment from the company)
General chairman Carr and UP have been working on a new modification agreement . There is some good, and some bad.
Since there is no end in sight for this Virus we will be setting up a zoom meeting for our August Union meeting so we can talk about the possible changes. We will vote on it after we discuss it. make sure Brother Hess (firstname.lastname@example.org) hasyourcurrent email address
We will email you a copy of the proposed agreement tomorrow
The Teamsters along with SEIU, CWA and a coalition of social justice groups will stand in solidarity with workers across the country for a national day of worker actions on July 20 to declare Black Lives Matter and to demand social and economic justice.
At noon on July 20 for 8 minutes and 48 seconds Teamsters employees will walk off their respective jobs.
However, As Railroad employees we fall under the Railway Labor act and this would be no different than any other non sanctioned wildcat stike or illegal Job action. We can not participate . we cant stop trains.
General Chairman Carr has contacted Rod Doerr and he said the UP would not allow us to participate and they would sue us if we did.
Now if you are not working and would like to join a local rally or march (hopefully with a mask on) there is a caravan of Teamsters leaving at 11am @ 5080 Obama blvd Los Angels Ca 90016
