Weekend Atlantic City/Newark Division Extra Board service

GC Burkert contacted me and as he is currently unavailable traveling from meetings, asked me to post a message concerning the Papal Visit this weekend. He has reached an agreement with the carrier for Atlantic City line service and what will be required of crews. In addition, compensation for all regular Atlantic City crews affected by assignment changes, and all Newark division extra board employees. All employees who are available will receive an additional hour straight time pay for each day Saturday and Sunday. Employees who wish to receive the additional pay must be available that day Saturday and Sunday, and not use sick, personal, optional, hold down or vacation days. He has had conversations with management and will personally ensure what was agreed upon is fulfilled. Details on service and time cards will follow
