      CHECK YOUR MAILBOX !!!!

      (A yellow postcard from G.C. Jeff Fry, was sent to address-on-file of all current and former members.) 

      If you do not see this card, please contact office to update contact info... 


      During recent meetings with BNSF Railway, the Engineering and Safety Department praised the on-going partnership of Carrier, it’s employ-ees, and the Organization that has lead to BNSF’s best severity ratio in com-pany history.   A partnership founded by a Safety Agreement, which proper-ly communicates and executes Safety through a team of Organization-appointed Safety Assistants for Track and B&B employees.   

          
      Immediately after, BNSF leadership decided that this encouraging progress should be “modernized.”  In short, the Carrier decided that it wants to change the terms of the Safety Agreement AND cut the current number of Safety Assistants from forty-three(43), down to ten (10); increase the re-quired curriculum (combining both sub-departments curriculums into one Di-vision S.A.); as well as, changing other decision-making roles.

          
      Your union representatives believes this is a huge and disappointing change of direction that cuts the momentum from all  progress made today.  After lengthy discussion within the Organization representation, we pushed back.    
      Please join us in writing all of your General Directors, Managers, Su-pervisors, Roadmasters, and/or any other BNSF Leadership and tell them that you are happy with the current program !!    

      In solidarity —  Jeffery Fry  — Gen. Chair AT&SFF System Federation

      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
