T/A Vote

Brothers and Sisters, the ballots are arriving in mail boxes all across the country.  I encourage you to exercise your right to vote.  The Union Pacific Central Region continuously has the largest turnout in the Nation.  

Please join me in voting yes on the T/A for the following reasons:

  • Congress will not let us strike with our economy already in shambles.
  • The side letters, especially side letter 5 will no longer be on the table.
  • We will get the straight PEB from both parties when push comes to shove.
  • This is in fact the largest raise negotiated in the last 45 years.
  • If voted down we will lose the 3 preventative care occurrences that were added in side letter 3.
  • We will lose the cap on Health and Welfare premiums that was obtained in side letter 4.

I know a lot of you are pissed and want to go on strike, the BMWE will probably go on strike on November 20th and of course we will join them on the picket line in support of their issues. 

Just make your voice heard one way or the other as I respect your right to vote no if that is the route you choose.
