Agreement reached on Leave of Absence Rule

The UTU General Committee reached an agreement with the Carrier to consolidate our Leave of Absence rule. This made the road agreement uniformly applicable to yard and hostling service. The agreement was ratified in each hub and non-merged territories with each Local Chairman that voted casting a vote in favor of adoption.

 We picked the road rule, Article 12 of the system schedule, because it offers the most protection for members. In contract, Article 14 of the Yard Rule required the termination of anyone that does not report for service at the end of a leave of absence even if physically unable to do so.
