Recalls - 7/27/2016

Just as a reminder, if you are recalled from furlough to a full time position, you have 15 days to report or you will be removed from the seniority roster.  If you are on the AWRR and recalled to a full time position you have 48 hours to report.  This can be extended on a case by case basis with manpower.  Also, if you are recalled from furlough to full time or to the awts/awrr you will have to contact the DRO to get marked-up.  If it has been more than 30 days since you last worked you will have to take a return to work rules exam.  This will be scheduled by the DRO or Brandon Bell and will be taken at your return to work location.  You can find their phone numbers in the u.p. phonebook.

Claims - 7/27/2016

Starting now, if you do not give me a timeslip with what you are claiming, and a correct cut slip (epayroll-my trainstubs), I will not process your claim.  Your claim must also be in the box 30 prior to expiration or it may not be processed.  The carrier has been very complacent with agreements lately and I am seeing a big influx of claims.  We are trying to be efficient as possible with processing claims.  If you do not have this information, I have to track you down to get it and it slows the process down.  I will not do this any longer.  The claim will be returned to you.  Any questions, you can ask me or any other local officer.  They can show you how to submit a claim and show you how to get the necessary paperwork.

Securement!!! - 5/2/2016

Make sure that when you secure your train, or setout, that it has the proper amount of brakes.  Refer to the Superintendents Bulletins for specifics on securement.  Make a release test to make sure they hold.  FRA and Carrier have seen an increase in instances where trains were not secured.  Be aware!!
