On January 5, 2018 the TWU reached a tentative agreement for our TWU/JCC (Mechanical) and TWU/ASWC (On-Board Service) Members together with our coalition bargaining partners.
The Tentative Agreement provides significant wages with full Retroactive Pay beginning with the July 1, 2015 wage increase. Beginning January 1, 2018 members’ Health and Welfare will be frozen at $228 for the duration of the contract with no retroactive Health and Welfare contributions prior to January 1, 2018.
Railroad Division Local President and International staff have considered the Tentative Agreement and overwhelmingly recommend ratification.
Railroad Division Director John Feltz said “I want to thank all of our Amtrak members for their support and patience during the negotiation process and I am glad to bring all of our hard- working Amtrak members the contract that they deserve.”
Additional information will be made available over the next few weeks.
