The FRA NOR THE UNION'S have agreed to change our agreed HOS! IT was
rumored they were going to go back to the old 6 for 8 or 10 for 12.
There was no mention of taking away the 6 and 7 starts rest period. It
is being reported that crew management is blowing the phones up of crew
members who are off on mandatory rest periods after getting 6 and 7
starts. They are being called after they have been rested 10 hours.If
this happens to you contact your LC AND YOUR GC OFFICE. NOTIFY THE FRA
HOS OFFICE. DOCUMENT EACH TIME THEY CALL. IF YOU ANSWER THE PHONE BY
ACCIDENT WHILE THEY ARE RUNNING ROSTER CALLS DEMAND THEY RESTART YOUR
MANDATORY REST HOURS. IF THEY CONTINUE TO CALL YOU FILE ETHICS CHARGES
AS WELL. CREWS ARE BEING RUN RAGGED AND REST IS DETRIMENTAL FOR HEALTH
AND SAFETY REASONS.
