CN, BLET agree on tentative five-year pact for GTW engineers

The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen’s (BLET) Grand Trunk Western (GTW) General Committee of Adjustment recently reached a tentative five-year agreement with Canadian National Railway Co. covering locomotive engineers in the Class I’s GTW territory.

The contract calls for a 16 percent wage increase and $1,000 bonus/claim settlement for all active engineers. The pact would amend a 2003 hourly rate agreement, the BLET said.

Union officials mailed ratification ballots to members on Dec. 6. The BLET will announce voting results shortly after ballots are returned on Jan. 15, 2007.
