Starting January 1, 2019, our yard members received the new basic day pay rate. When this rate of pay was negotiated it was to settle the yard meal period dispute.

Since January 1, 2019, the carrier has stopped paying the short crew payment to assignments working Conductor/Foreman only. This was not part of the agreement our General Chairman agreed too. When he was made aware of what timekeeping was declining payment, he attempted to correct their practice. The carrier has taken the position that they do not have to make this payment anymore.

We need every member working a single man assignment to place a non-service claim for the short crew payment of $10.75. Help protect our crew consist agreement and place the claim and forward them to our office for further progression.
