Just where do you get that? Documented\written language in contract
agreements for T&E people can be similar.
Hell, the unions got weak, weaker, 'cause the younger people did.
I once had more balls/clout when I was an active employee \ local rep.
account I had backing: local, general committee, state board, etc.
The full time union big-shots have to protect the working on the job
part time local reps. RR companies have gotten away with a
lot of vindictiveness. Takes guts to stand up - beat 'em and someone
little can/may lose their butt. However, they: the employee & union,
win 80+ % of the time in the end if anything has to go farther
(arbitration, etc., etc).
