The appeal asks the court to compel airlines to negotiate in good faith with unions on mandatory bargaining matters. The themes associated with them have been the subject of collective bargaining for decades and are indeed part of the Amf; November 1, 2019 in accordance with Section 6 of the Railway Works Act (RLA). These are attempts by airlines to restrict access to certain medicines and to violently reorganize health-related networks. The airlines are trying to replace one of the crew members in the train cabin with technology and set up a one-person operation. The crew coherence agreements, negotiated for many years by SMART-TD and its predecessors, stand in the way, but are undermined by these and other measures. To heal the wounds of their masters, these “commentators” try to do so as union officers who protect their own jobs. They don`t know what they`re talking about, and their ignorance is evident in the web they weave. They used anonymous sources to lend credibility to a great story that everyone would know with real insight that it is far from factual. The fact is that all officers are firmly united in this new SMART-TD administration. The unions are: the American Train Dispatchers Association; the brotherhood of locomotive drivers and railway workers; The Brotherhood of Road Maintenance; The Brotherhood of Railway Signal Men; The International Association of Machinists and Aeronautics and Space Workers; International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, Mechanical Division; International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, Transportation Division; The International Boiler Brotherhood; The International Brotherhood of Electricity Workers; Fireman District National Conference – Oilers, Local 32BJ, SEIU; Transport Communications Union (IAM); and the transport workers` union.
We will proudly go through this round of national negotiations, not only in solidarity with BLET, but also with an unprecedented group that includes the American Train Dispatchers Association, Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen, International Association of Machinists, International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, National Conference of Firemen – Oilers/SEIU, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Transport Workers Union of America and Transport Communications Union. I look forward to joining BLET President Dennis Pierce and the leadership of the other unions in our coordinated bargaining coalition as we move forward in this process. In total, THE CBC unions represent more than 105,000 railway workers covered by the national agreements of the various organizations and represent more than 80% of the workforce that will be affected by this round of negotiations. The case was filed on October 3, 2019 by BNSF, CSX, Kansas City Southern, Grand Trunk Western, Norfolk Southern, Illinois Central, Union Pacific and Belt Railway Company of Chicago, arguing that moratoriums in the various crew-consisting agreements do not exclude airlines from the reopening of the crew. Such notices are required by Section 6 of the Railway Works Act to reopen the agreements. With this communication to the NCCC and the ncCC`s previous communication, the parties will begin the next round of negotiations.
