100 mile yard day, regular assigned local picking up in Yard Limits

Brothers,

 UP is again violating our agreement, the claims process does work however you must submit the claims. the Latest example is the Gemco jobs That travel to West Colton, low 10, low 20, log 44

here are the 3 things that must happen,

1) You handle cars that are not in connection with your train

2) You are within Yard Limits

3) Yard crews are on duty

(a yard has switchmen WC, Shops ,Commerce)

its a 100 mile Yard Day this approximately a 270.00 dollar claim. please hold them accountable

Claim-

on 01/01/19 while assigned to the low10/lof74/log44 I was instructed by(name a manager who told you to do this work) @ mp# within Yard Limits where  switch crews are employed and on duty. (if you know a job number that is on duty that would help) to switch out cars/pick up cars/ car # from (train ID,If you know) “Not in connection with my train or work,” track number /time switching started /time switching ended /where cars were moved from and to/time finished/ time departed.

Now I know your on the engine and dont know the car numbers , but this is a good claim for the trainmen as well .

make sure this is also in your FRA , Not in your FRA didnt happen

Attached is statement of claim on behalf of Los Angeles Service Unit Engineer (name,eid,) October 22, 2015, for a 100 Mile, YARD DAY, while employed in Local Freight service @ co470 ae10 on the LOW 20 The decision rendered by the Timekeeper has been rejected, and I am, therefore appealing it to you in accordance with the provisions of the existing agreement. Engineer X was regularly assigned to LOW 20, and has claimed a 100 Mile, YARD DAY – account instructed to switch cars for the outbound hauler (MWCJY 21) and or purify the yard at the weeds . none of the cars switched were in conjunction with their job and or train .

Edit

:)

Attention All Engineers!!

Brothers,

 

 

Immediately start running your train five (5) under your max speed on territories where PTC is active. We are averaging 3 PTC enforcement’s a week. Five (5) MPH over is a critical rule violation and is a triggering event in MAPS.

 

There is no reason to run on the Razors edge. Know your territory. PTC has the final word. Please keep yourself employed.
