In late May, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) members ratified their first-ever labor contract with the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad LLC (WNYP).
 
The four-year contract governs about a dozen WNYP workers and runs through Dec. 31, 2021. The pact establishes hourly wage rates, overtime pay, and health and welfare benefits. It also provides due process protections for BLET members that define a process to be followed when disciplinary charges are levied due to an alleged rule violation, union officials said in a press release.In late May, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) members ratified their first-ever labor contract with the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad LLC (WNYP).   The four-year contract governs about a dozen WNYP workers and runs through Dec. 31, 2021.

I wondering if this will bleed across to the B&H and LA&L?    Those wages are a substantial increase,  I'm hopeful, that as a business, that WNYP can afford the increases.   The story is however, redundant redundant!

Congrats to the crews. As corporate incomes continue to increase and middle class wages disappear I am glad some people still can find the protection of a Union
