|953||2nd/3rd Give Up Board|
Second/Third District- Give Up Extra Board
This refers to the parties' discussion on December 18, 1995, and your Organization's correspondence of December 20, 1995, concerning the "...difficulty of senior train or yardmen being able to exit the Extra Board..." and your Organization's request that an agreement similar to that in place on the First, Fourth, and Fifth Seniority Districts which provides employees an opportunity to give up their extra board position be developed for the Second and Third Seniority Districts.
As indicated in your December 20, 1995 letter, the circumstances of Second and Third Seniority District employees in regards to their ability to move from the Guaranteed Extra Boards parallels closely the situations experienced on the First, Fourth, and Fifth Seniority Districts. In that regard, employees on the Second and Third Seniority Districts have expressed concerns about being "frozen" on the extra board.
In order to address this problem, the parties have-agreed to provide Second and Third District employees an additional mechanism to move from an extra board. Accordingly, it is agreed a Second or Third Seniority District employee may relinquish his/her extra board position subject to the following conditions:
The provisions of this Letter of Understanding may be cancelled by either party by the serving upon the other party a ten (10) day advanced written notice of such desire.
If the foregoing properly reflects our understandings regarding this matter, please so indicate by affixing your signature in the space provided below; returning one (1) fully executed copy to this office at your earliest opportunity.
Signed this 22nd day of May. 1996.
