BLET reaches tentative agreement with Norfolk Southern

CLEVELAND, December 29 — The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has reached a tentative contract agreement with Norfolk Southern (NS) governing rates of pay and work rules for more than 4,500 locomotive engineers.

TrueBallot, Inc., will conduct online and telephone voting for this agreement. Ballots and instructions, along with a copy of the agreement, are being mailed to active members working for NS on December 29, 2014. Voting ends at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 29, 2015.

Members who are eligible and have not received a ratification packet by January 7, 2015, 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 participate in the ratification process. “As a union member, you have the right — and the duty — to vote on the contracts that govern your pay and working conditions,” President Pierce said. “Membership involvement in the balloting process is a key to our strength as a labor organization. I urge you to make your voice heard by participating in this most important democratic process.”
