Western New York And Pennsylvania Railroad Workers Ratify BLET Contract

Hourly Rates, Health and Welfare Benefits Covered

In late May, members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) achieved a significant milestone with the ratification of their first-ever union contract with the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad. It was ratified by an overwhelming majority of those casting a ballot.The four-year agreement governs about a dozen members and runs through December 31, 2021.

The agreement establishes hourly wage rates, overtime pay, a seniority roster, the concept of a basic day, and health and welfare benefits. It provides due process protections for members — perhaps one of the most important benefit in any union contract — that defines the process for protection of employees when disciplinary charges are levied regarding an alleged rule violation.
