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.
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.
