BLET reaches tentative agreement with Indiana and Ohio Railway

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, May 12 The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has reached a tentative contract with the Indiana and Ohio Railway (I&O), governing rates of pay and work rules for approximately 50 engineers, conductors, and trainees.

Ballots and instructions, along with a synopsis of the agreement, have been mailed to active members working for the I&O. Voting will conclude on Monday, June 12, 2017. Members who have not received a ballot by Monday, May 22, should request a replacement by calling the BLET National Division at (216) 241-2630, extension 222. When connected with the extension, please leave the following information:

your name, address and phone number;
the division to which you belong;
your date of birth; and
the last four digits of your Social Security number.

E-mail requests for ballots will not be accepted because personal information is required to verify eligibility before a ballot can be issued.

The BLET first organized the I&O on August 3, 2001, and a 78 percent majority of members ratified their first-ever union contract in 2003. I&O members belong to BLET Division 282 (Cincinnati, Ohio).

A subsidiary of Genesee & Wyoming Inc., the I&O is a 570-mile short line railroad operating primarily in western Ohio, as well as in parts of southeastern Indiana and southeast Michigan. The I&O serves the metropolitan areas of Cincinnati, Columbus, Springfield and Lima. The railroad handles a wide range of commodities, including metal products, chemicals, plastics, lumber, paper, grain and grain products, such as ethanol and dried distillers grains. The I&O serves several barge terminals in Cincinnati, and has customers offering transload services to handle a variety of products.
