MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT
#1405209918  

between the

UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY  
for the territory covered by the  
IDAHO AGREEMENT  
 and the

BROTHERHOOD OF LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEERS    

Missed Calls - Lack of Current Information

     It is agreed pool freight engineers who miss a call for service because of the lack of current or correct information from the central calling point (Automated Voice Response AVR), when the engineer has sought such information, will be reinstated to the first-out status and will be called for the next turn.  Or return to the home terminal, the engineer will be placed in the same relative position occupied in the pool prior to the missed call.

     An extra engineer who misses a call for pool freight service because of the lack of current available or correct information from the central calling point (AVR), when the engineer has sought such information, will be reinstated to first-out status on the extra board.

     If an engineer, who has obtained and relied on information from AVR, feels he/she has been improperly placed in missed call status, that engineer must notify CMS as soon as possible, but within four hours of the missed call. Upon such notification, CMS will place the engineer in first-out status, without question. If problems develop from this handling, the company reserves the right to verify that an engineer claiming an improper missed call has, in fact, contacted AVR and found unavailable or incorrect information, prior to placing such engineer in first-out position.

No runaround penalties will be paid as a result of the application of this agreement. 

This agreement will be effective June 15,1999 and remain in effect subject to the provisions of the Railway Labor Act with the specific exception that if crew notification technology changes to the extent this agreement is no longer appropriate, either party may give 60 days written notice of intent to cancel.

 Signed at Salt Lake City June 7, 1999.
