BLET members ratify new contract with Indiana Southern

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, November 4 — Members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) have ratified a new collective bargaining agreement with the Indiana Southern Railroad (ISRR).

The five-year agreement governs rates of pay, benefits and work rules for approximately 17 members, including the crafts of locomotive engineer and conductor.

The BLET’s ISRR membership belongs to Division 270 located in Washington, Ind., which is a part of the CP Rail-U.S. General Committee of Adjustment (GCA). The negotiating team consisted of CP Rail/Indiana Southern General Chairman Pete Semenek, Division 270 Local Chairman Terry Braun and National Vice President Marcus Ruef.

“I congratulate and thank General Chairman Semenek, Local Chairman Braun and Vice President Ruef for their hard work in bringing these negotiations to a successful conclusion,” BLET National President Dennis R. Pierce said. “I also thank the Indiana Southern membership for their engagement throughout this round of bargaining and for their participation in the balloting process.”

The BLET first organized the ISRR in September of 2002. A Genesee & Wyoming property, the ISRR operates 196 miles of track between Indianapolis and Evansville, Ind. It handles primarily coal and agricultural commodities.
