Springfield Terminal Railway, BLET reach tentative agreement
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) has reached a tentative contract agreement with the Springfield Terminal Railway.
The tentative pact governs rates of pay, work rules and health and welfare for the 80 BLET members who work in the railroad's locomotive engineer craft, according to a union press release.
Ratification ballots were mailed last week and are due Sept. 17, BLET officials said.
Springfield Terminal is part of Pan Am Railways, which owns and operates regional railroads covering northern New England.
