Asleep At The Wheel

Casey Jones you'd better,
watch your speed...

    "The railroad is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week operation", many of us have been told, when requesting some extra 'rest' between jobs. Unfortunately, the people that make the railroad move, like all other people, do not operate "24 hours a day, 7 days a week".

    Anyone who's worked around the clock has either seen, or experienced first-hand, the inevitable effects of sleep deprivation. Maybe it was you, maybe it was the jitney driver, maybe it was....

    The real fun is when someone tries to explain to the crew-caller that they are too tired to go to work.

Public Service Announcement; For each and every action there are
consequences! It may even be a family member or loved one that pays but
someone always pays.
   This company is full of cockroaches thinking they are untouchable
right up until an unwelcome "career counseling" and they realize the
error of their ways and that their personal life has been infiltrated
and leave the company. Unfortunately there are 50 more cockroaches to
take their spot.
   Apparently an example needs to be set. Why ruin so many people's
lives for the almighty dollar? Why ask for mercy when you showed none?
Why endanger your employees yet become apologetic if your family are
the ones at risk, after all you caused both situations?
   We are only given one life, think about the people you are hurting,
the families struggling to put food on the table, the ones struggling
to pay medical bills for their children, and take a look in the mirror.
Every job cut is another family that has to struggle and do without even
basic needs. Jobless people have way too much time on their hands and
not much left to lose. Bad situation. 
   Consequences...they can be a bitch!

The union representatives suck!! I asked my rep the other day what
percentage of the bonus the engineers were getting. Guess what he
didn’t know. How the hell do you not know. If not knowing shit was part
of the job description you guys have got that one down. You don’t know
shit because your too busy marked off union business not doing shit. I
hate the union and I don’t care the little good they do. They are all
corrupt. I like everyone else with 20 plus years are stuck.

Your absolutely correct about the agreement,     How can anyone keep
track of all the side agreements and hand shake agreements that have
taken place,     I blame this on the corruption in our unions,     
They are just as corrupt as the company,     Letting them do whatever
they want, whenever they want.       And they don’t give a shit!!!

TCRC members ratify new three-year contract with CN
(Source: Teamsters Canada Rail Conference press release, January 31,
2020) 

MONTREAL — Conductors, yard workers and trainpersons employed by
Canadian National Railway (CN) have voted 91.3% to ratify a new 3-year
collective agreement. The over 3,000 workers are represented by the
Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC). 

The new contract focuses primarily on safety, specifically with regards
to crew fatigue and hours of work. The agreement was reached after an
8-day strike in November last year. 

“We did not get everything we wanted, but we still succeeded in
reaching a fair agreement which will keep the trains running while
improving rail safety. That’s good news for our members, the company
and all Canadians,” said the national president of Teamsters Canada,
François Laporte. 

“We’ve succeeded in getting CN to adjust some of its practices in the
interests of safety. But the core problem of fatigue in the rail
industry can only be resolved through government regulations,” added
the president of the TCRC, Lyndon Isaak. “The issue of fatigue is still
far from resolved.” 

Key points from the new contract

During bargaining, the company sought to strip the collective agreement
of its rest provisions while increasing the workload on conductors. The
union prevented this from occurring.

The company has agreed to a number of changes relating to workplace
safety. Of critical interest are the improvements made to provisions
covering rest and fatigue. 

CN does not recognize rest as a regulatory or safety issue. As such,
when exhausted workers ask to be relieved after working beyond the
10-hour limit set out in the collective agreement, the company would
previously tell workers to “do the work now and file a grievance later”
if they were unhappy. Under the new agreement, the company will waive
the “work-now-grieve-later” policy when fatigued employees seek to book
rest and be relieved, meaning they would not be compelled to continue
working. 

Under the new agreement, to further dissuade the company from violating
the rest provisions set out in the collective agreement, workers will
receive extra compensation when forced to work 30 and 60 minutes into
their rest periods, including train staff and those at railyards.

The agreement sets out shifts as starting and ending at the employee’s
locker facility, or another agreed location, in order to clarify when
workers are on paid time. Previously, the company would count trips to
employee locker facilities as off-duty time, significantly reducing
time available to sleep. Trips to the locker facility can sometimes
take hours, and federal work/rest rules mandate as little 6 to 8 hours
off-duty time between shifts.

Other, non-safety related changes to the agreement include an
industry-standard 8% wage increase over the course of the 3-year
agreement (2.5% / 2.5% / 3%), retroactive to July 23, 2019. Workers
will also receive a taxable $1000 ratification bonus. The health and
welfare plan also saw a series of improvements. 

The union was not able to eliminate the lifetime cap health and welfare
payouts, instead convincing the company to lift the cap from $60,000 to
$75,000. Unless the federal government implements a universal
pharmacare program, this issue will likely come up again in the next
round of bargaining.

The new collective agreement will expire on July 22, 2022.

Acknowledgements

“These fights are never easy. I would like thank the bargaining
committee for their hard work and dedication, and for standing up to
adversity over the course of this 8-day strike,” said Ray Donegan, head
of the union’s bargaining committee.

Teamsters would like to once again thank Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
for respecting workers’ right to strike. The union would also like to
acknowledge Labor Minister Filomena Tassi, Transport Minister Marc
Garneau, and the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS).
They were instrumental in helping parties reach an agreement. 

“Ottawa used to routinely violate workers’ right to strike in the rail
sector. But this government remained calm and focused on helping
parties reach an agreement, and it worked,” said François Laporte.

Teamsters represent close to 125,000 workers in Canada in all
industries, including over 16,000 in the rail sector. The International
Brotherhood of Teamsters, with which Teamsters Canada is affiliated, has
1.4 million members in North America.
