BLET reaches tentative agreement with Pacific Harbor Line

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, December 13 — The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has reached a tentative agreement with Pacific Harbor Line (PHL). Ballots were mailed today to active members of the BLET employed by PHL who are eligible to vote in the ratification of this agreement.

Ballots are due by 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, January 13, 2020. The tentative agreement governs rates of pay, benefits and work rules for more than 150 members.

Members who are eligible and have not received a ratification packet by Monday, December 23 should call the 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;
• The date you were promoted to locomotive engineer;
• 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.

BLET National President Dennis R. Pierce urged all eligible members to cast their ballots in the ratification process. “Voting on contracts is one of the most important processes of union democracy, and I encourage all of our Pacific Harbor Line members to review the tentative agreement and to cast their vote in the ratification process,” President Pierce said.

Pacific Harbor Line, Inc. provides rail transportation, maintenance and dispatching services to the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, which together form the largest container port in the United States. In addition to switching over 40,000 units of carload freight annually, PHL provides rail switching services for nine on-dock intermodal terminals and provides dispatching services for about 140 intermodal or unit trains per day. PHL connects with BNSF and UP. PHL is a subsidiary of Anacostia Rail Holdings, a firm that operates local and regional freight railroads.
