Below you will find information regarding the Disability Insurance that will be going in to effect in January.

Recently the Organization and the Carriers have been Bargaining on several different issues. Refer to the Agreement page for signed copies of these Agreements that affect your Railroad. Also, CSX employees have had a change in service lanes and the new realignment is posted under the CSX tab on the Agreement page of this website.
Some Railroads are offering additional time off preceding the Saturday Holidays, so contact your Supervisor to see if this will be available for you.
Furloughed Employees: A new benefit year begins July 1 of every year. If you was not able to draw Railroad Unemployment previously, it might be available to you now. Go to the Benefits/Unemployment section of this website to learn more and apply to start receiving your benefits.
We have had several calls concerning the increase of our insurance effective July 1, 2016. This letter is a copy from the 2012 Agreement that may be used to clarify the Monthly employee Cost Chairing Contributions. Please click on this link to view in PDF format Cost Sharing.
We must continue to push for better pay in America.
Lodge: 224 and 1701
This week members of the Affiliated System Federation came out in support of their Local Lodges. Some lodges had as many as 70 members present, breaking records that hasn’t been seen in decades. Another record broken was the amount of young people that came out to be involved in their Local Union. The young members are the future of this Brotherhood and after this week, I can say our future is bright. Everyone is concerned with the current ever changing problems in the Railroad Industry. With the help of the active Local Union Members, we will be able to take on any challenge that is presented to us. Please stay active in your Local Union Meetings, for it is strength in numbers that can defeat the less than adequate treatment that some are faced with everyday. Continue to check back on this page for updates as the Contracts progress.
