SMART-TD Updates

The FRA along with Amtrak have been asking NJT employees for their certification cards and are inspecting required publications. Everyone must have their books with them, you can be moved at up anytime to a conduct or assistant conductor assignment. You must have at sign-up, the latest versions of all books particularly the most recent Amtrak GO 601 and Newest Edition of NJ Transit TRO-5. If you do not have them request it from a Trainmaster and if they don’t have what you need, let an officer know we will try and assist.

The crew dispatchers have been instructed by the FRA to strongly encourage members to not take less than thirty minutes’ deadhead to an assignment. If you do take less than thirty, they will investigate to confirm your travel time is in fact correct, using your home address on file.

Minimum travel times are being researched by labor relations and should be in effect soon as per DN-8-1103. We are still waiting for guidelines and clarity on how they will be used.

There were tweets received from a neighbor of the NJCL mentioning NJ Transit and their equipment. The NJ Transit police department is aware and actively investigating, crews affected will be updated by supervision. As always report anything unusual immediately to the dispatcher, supervision or the NJTPD.

Rollover will be in May, the date has not been finalized, when we get that information we will post

Our next meeting will be Sunday March the 5th 10:00am at the VFW Linden NJ
