Amtrak Contract Decision
Updated On: Jun 20, 2014

MARCH 26, 2014 — The Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen (BRS) and its coalition partner, The Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes (BMWED), joined together to form the Passenger Rail Labor Bargaining Coalition. Between the two Unions, almost all of Amtrak’s engineering department employees negotiated together as one bargaining unit.

Amtrak and the PRLBC began discussing the possibility of a binding arbitration Agreement last July, and the parties signed the Agreement in September. The dispute was supposed to be resolved and a contract in place by January 1, 2014, however, scheduling issues of the three neutrals delayed the proceedings until January 6, 2014.

The Arbitration Board consisted of Ira Jaffe, Chairman, Shayam Das, Member and Herbert Fishgold, Member.

The link to the newly released Arbitration Award is below. It allows for a 3.1% wage increase each year over a 5 year period.
