Brotherhood of Railway Carmen (BRC) Reached Agreement for Paid Sick Leave on CSXT
Today the BRC reached a voluntary agreement with CSXT to provide paid sick leave for our members. BRC is among the very first union to reach an agreement with any carrier to provide paid sick leave.
This agreement provides four (4) days of paid sick leave to be paid at 100% of the employees rate of pay. In addition it also provides members with the opportunity to designate the use of their personal leave days for sick leave.
“We are extremely proud that BRC is one of the very first unions to reach this type of an agreement. This agreement is a significant accomplishment and provides a very important benefit for our members working at CSXT. The other Carrier’s should take note and come to the bargaining table in a similar manner.” Said BRC General President Don Grissom.
“The leadership of our union committed to continue the efforts to secure paid sick leave for our members. Today’s agreement is a huge win for our members at CSXT. And we will continue the fight to secure paid sick leave for our members working on other Railroads. I am proud of BRC General President Don Grissom and National Representative Jason Cox for their hard work on making this possible.” TCU National President Artie Maratea
