INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, February 8 — The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has reached a Tentative Agreement with the Missouri & Northern Arkansas Railroad (M&NA) governing rates of pay, benefits and work rules for nearly 80 operating employees.
The BLET originally organized the M&NA operating employees in 1999 and their first BLET-negotiated agreement went into effect in April of 2000. They are a part of the BLET’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe (former STL-SF) General Committee of Adjustment.
“Union membership is not a spectator sport,” President Pierce said. “Voting on your union contract is one of the core democratic principles of our Union. I encourage all of our M&NA Brothers and Sisters to become educated on the issues and to participate in this most important process of union democracy.”
