Progress Through Unity

Some updates

  • As of this morning we have not heard from the coalition leadership or the national mediation board on the status of our negotiations. When making their decision the NMB will often time it so when we are at the end of the process (the 240 days) congress will be in session, this may be the cause of the delay. Like we stated in our last post concerning negotiations, we will notify membership ASAP when we receive notification from the coalition leadership.
  • GC Burkert will be starting a text messaging alert system for members, the intent is to get updated information directly from our leader. This will be particular important as we approach critical junctures with our contract negotiations. Also for updated information on extra work available, during storms and service disruptions, meetings times and locations to name a few. Please email your information to Erica in the Local 60 office at
  • Also we started posting daily flag sheets on local 60 site, there is a tab at the top of home page, we are getting real busy with flag assignments and remember they are NC assignments for HOS. Also added was a link for SMART Legislative Action Center this link will direct you to issues in Washington DC that directly affect us, and will draft your message or letter and direct it to your local representatives.
