C3RS News

NJT and the unions covered by C3RS have agreed to allow occurrences where our members find passengers in unauthorized areas (when a passenger is taken to the yard or left on train at final stop) be protected from railroad discipline. This is a 6 month trial beginning June 1, 2015. As always, we remind all members to be as detailed as possible in any C3RS report they make. The more information provided to the Peer Review Team the better. Information and updates regarding C3RS is always available at the PRT’s website at

Below is the text from the IMOU revision

Effective June 1, 2015, for a trial period of six months ending November 30, 2015, Article 6.2, Item 9 of the current NJ TRANSIT C3RS IMOU will provide protection from Railroad discipline. During this trial period the NJT PRT will provide the carrier with a monthly report of the total number of cases concerning Article 6.2, Item 9 with a breakdown of how many are unknown events vs. known events.

Prior to the conclusion of this six month trial period, the stakeholders agree to discuss the continuation of this agreement.

The Parties below approve this addition to the IMOU and the principles of the Confidential Close Call Reporting System.
