Jp016 Re17 Pool

Brothers,

 I have had alot of questions regarding the RE17 pool. I apologize I’ve had alot of discipline to handle in the last week.

Bill Bowman (CMS Manpower) contacted me Wednesday August 15 to tell me they were going to add four (4) turns to the jp016 re17 pool Monday. Because this is a zeroed out pool they dont have to advertise just start pulling from the permanent bid list. 

The plan is to start with 4 turns and go from there , what you will be doing :

mostly ILBLB work going east and possibly patching long pool trains short on time coming west. You are under the Basin Flat Rate….However there are some Very Important Caveats in this agreement .

 

  • 1) if you go past MP 27.8 on the LA Subdivision, or 506.8 on the Alhambra Subdivision. you are entitled to a new BASIN day. 

  • 2) If you go past MP 482.9 going towards Gemco, you are entitled to a new BASIN day

  • 3) If you depart CP Alameda after 10 hours on Duty, you are entitled to a new Basin day.

Long Pool Engineers RE21/RE31 Watch your SPEED!

Brothers,

 

 I have talked to MOP Feetham numerous times this week and last week regarding speeding Coming out of the ditch Eastbound.

You are off on what you think is clear, the technology was just implemented last week. and its exposing our lack of knowledge.

Going to Yuma and Yermo PTC does not become active until all unknown switches are clear of the train. once you are clear PTC becomes active and Multiple trains were already over speed.

Engineer  #1 11 mph over- Decertification 

Engineer  #2  6 mph over

Engineer  #3  9 mph over

waiting for rooms

Brothers,

 I wanted to share something with you that was brought up to me by brother Petty. Previously we would claim 8 hours waiting for a room after waiting 30 minutes. an arbitrator ruled against us. the claim now is after 30 minutes its a minute for minute claim.

 

example waiting 1 hour 30  minutes at Oak tree you claim an hour, you also must adjust your rest with cms.

Complete your FRA

Brothers,

 One again the carrier is doing anything they can to separate you from your money.

If you have a claim spend the extra 5 minutes and complete your FRA properly.  This is a Federal document and must be completed to reflect the work performed.

If you do not timekeeping will use this as an excuse not to pay you.

Fraternally

Paulo
