By a better than 2-to-1 margin, members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET), a division of the Teamsters Rail Conference, ratified a new collective bargaining agreement with the Canadian National’s former Illinois Central property on May 30, 2018.

The contract governs 475 locomotive engineers and runs through December 31, 2019. It provides retroactive pay beginning August 1, 2015, and 3 percent general wage increases on August 1 each year through 2019. The total of GWIs payable during the term of the agreement is 12.5%, resulting in a total compounded increase of 13.14%.
