YARD ENGINEERS BIDDING ON ROAD VACANCIES
For the purpose of precluding exhaustion of supply of yard
engineers necessary to protect the Carrier’s service, it has been proposed
by the Organization and acceptable to the Company that formal regulations
be adopted to prevent the movement of yard engineers with insufficient
seniority to hold the road engineers’ extra board bidding to road jobs
which creates a shortage of yard engineers.
ACCORDINGLY, it is agreed that the following regulation is hereby
adopted as a provision of agreement between the parties:
“Engineers working in yard service may not apply for vacancies on
bulletins advertising road engineer vacancies unless the applicant is
senior to the junior engineer on the road extra board.”
This Agreement shall be effective September 10, 1975, and thereafter subject to the condition that it shall automatically terminate and be of no further force nor effect ten (10) days after written advance notice is served by either party upon the other requesting such termination.
In the event of termination as herein provided, all rules and
regulations in effect on the date immediately prior to the effective date
of this Agreement shall be restored in their entirety.
Dated at Salt Lake City, Utah, this 5th day of September, 1975.
