2 More Rail Labor Unions Ratify New Pact

Members of two more railroad labor unions have ratified new labor contracts.

The latest to approve the new pacts are the SMART Railroad, Mechanical and Engineering Department, and the National Conference of Firemen & Oilers.

They are the fifth and sixth labor unions to ratify the contracts. Five other unions are in the ratification process while a 12th union has rejected its pact and returned to the bargaining table with the National Carriers Conference Committee, which represents railroad management.

The SMART MD said 54 percent of those voting favored ratifying the new contract.

The ratification process among the other unions is expected to play out through late November.
