      MEMBER DUES INCREASE

      In accordance with the National Division, please be advised effective with the 2nd half of November 2018, deductions for January 2019 dues payment, monthly dues will be increased $.50, making a total of $100.50, for Class l, Maintenance of Way Employes.


      As a result of the Teamsters merge, Article XV, Section 3, Paragraph l& 2 ofBMWE Division
      Bylaws, Effective January 1, 2005, reads as follows:


      "Sec. 3 Each Member shall be required to pay all BMWED Dues and
      Assessments. National Division Dues shall be adjusted each January to reflect
      one and three tenths (1.3) of the average straight time hourly rate of pay for
      each of the three rate classifications listed in Paragraph 3.8 of the Merger
      Agreement. The average straight time hourly rate of pay for standard contract
      will be based on the information reflected in the annual statement published
      by the National Railway Labor Conference which shall be used as an
      equivalent formula. In the event that the National Railway Labor Conference
      ceases to publish the annual statement or alters it materially and for nonstandard
      and non-rail contracts listed in Paragraph 3.8 of the Merger
      Agreement, an alternative equivalent formula shall be adopted so as to
      accurately reflect increase in rates-of-pay provided for under Agreements
      during the appropriate measurement period. Said amounts shall be rounded
      to the nearest $.25, which additional sum shall be taken into consideration
      when calculating any dues increase for the following year."

      RULE CHANGE(S) HQ    

      Effective July 1, 2018, the following rules are amended to further restrict the use of cellular telephones in company-owned or rented vehicles while driving.  (pdf version - CLICK HERE)

      •  Maintenance of Way Operating Rules 1.10 Games, Reading, or Electronic Devices
      •  Mechanical Safety Rules S-28.10 Games, Reading, or Electronic Devices

      With this change, vehicle drivers who are governed by these rule books may not handle cellular telephones while driving. Use of cellular telephones and similar devices is limited to hands-free mode, with no more than a single touch to dial, answer, or activate voice commands.

      Because the one-touch restriction now applies to all company-owned and rented vehicles, the following rules specific to cellular telephone use in Commercial Motor Vehicles are deleted.

      •  Maintenance of Way Safety Rules S-12.14.7 Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) Restrictions
      •  Mechanical Safety Rules S-12.14.7 Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV) Restrictions

      Additional changes have been made to the Maintenance of Way Operating Rules (MWOR). Operators of on-track equipment (including Hi-Rail vehicles) may not handle or touch a cellular phone when the equipment is in motion. See the amended MWOR 1.10 for additional details.


      "Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system—anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.

      Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.

      You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing."-- https://www.nhtsa.gov/risky-driving/distracted-driving
