Re: GN Rule 26(b)
Dear Mr. Wilson:
This is in reference to our dispute regarding the application of former Great Northern Schedule Rule 26(b). In settlement of this dispute, we agree to the following:
For each yard crew start under the former GN schedule agreement, BNSF will pay one 15 minute payment, without offset to overtime, per tour of duty to each yard engineer for engine preparation at the same daily rate as the working trip. This payment will be made to both Pre-85 and Post-85 engineers.
Outstanding claims on file for engine preparation will also be settled for one payment of 15 minutes, without offset to overtime, per tour of duty at the same daily rate as the working trip.
This resolves our dispute regarding GN rule 26(b).
If you concur, please do so by signifying below.
