Previously, the Transport Communications Union, the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen and the various Shopcrafts, including the Sheet Metal Workers International Association, had entered into six-year interim contracts with the National Carrier Conference Committee (NCCC). The NCCC represents BNSF, CSX, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern, line, Union Pacific and many small railways in national management. Regardless of that, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is expected to present an identical resolution for immediate vote in the Senate (S.J. 31). According to the BLET, the train distributors and BMWe were announced at the end of December 1, says Sen. Reid: The three Republicans of the main house said on November 29 the newspaper Hill: “We are concerned about the situation with the railroads of our nation, and we are concerned about the possibility of a national strike of the railways that threaten American jobs and cost the economy of our nation estimated at 2 billion dollars by day. _______________________________BLE UTU, on Freights, have a proposed treaty that can harm us all if they are adopted. It will set the standard for the industry and will have small wage increases and huge increases for health care, especially for the sick. (BLET has ratified the existing collective agreements with BNSF, CSX and Norfolk Southern – and is in separate wage negotiations with Union Pacific – but is under national health treatment. BMWE and ATDA are generally for salary and health agreements. National airlines include BNSF, CSX, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern, line, Union Pacific and many small railways. Air carriers are represented by the National Carriers Conference Committee.) If there is no national agreement between bLET, BMWE, ATDA and the airlines by 6 December, the Railway Labour Act has run its course and the parties that do not yet agree will be free to help themselves – a strike by work or lockout by the railways. It`s strange that the biggest concern about a Trump PEB was.
It`s strange because many union members voted for Trump to stand up for the working class, but when it came to proving it, they didn`t want to “take the opportunity” and lose labor rules. The vote on the agreement speaks for itself… One day, trade unions and the working class will have to stand up and demand sustainable wages and social benefits. This agreement does not. Its members voted to accept it. Now they have to live with it. These agreements have so far avoided the threat of a national railway strike. “For retail, a strike during the Christmas shopping season could be devastating,” the National Retailers Association said in a letter to Congress. “It is essential that Congress recognizes the serious economic damage that is threatened by the failure of an agreement with the remaining railway unions, and that it quickly avoids a railway strike that would prove devastating to both businesses and consumers. House Of Representatives spokesman John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va) and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said that if no interim agreement was reached by December with bLET, BMWE and ATDA.
