BLET ratifies contract with Pan Am Railways


Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) members last week ratified a new collective bargaining agreement with Pan Am Railways.

The three-year agreement contains no work rule or health and welfare changes. The contract calls for general wage increases of 2% at ratification, on Sept. 17, 2022, and on Sept. 17, 2023, BLET officials said in a press release.

The agreement covers 81 BLET members.

In November 2020, CSX announced it signed a formal agreement to purchase Pan Am Railways, but details were not disclosed. The new ratified agreement only provides an increase in wages due to the pending sale, BLET officials said.

Pan Am Railways owns and operates regional railroads in northern New England.
