Contract Ratification Process to Begin

One of the railroad labor unions that reached a tentative contract agreement with railroad management last week has told its members it will be awhile until the contract is presented to them for ratification.

The International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail, and Transportation Workers-Transportation Division told its members last week that contract language is still being worked out by lawyers for both sides.

Trains magazine reported on its website that it would be this week at the earliest before the final contract is available to be distributed to members.

Two other labor unions, the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees Division and the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen are expected to begin the ratification process today and count ballots on Oct. 10.
