TCU & BRC Secure Parental Leave Agreement on METRA

TCU members working at METRA will be eligible for paid parental leave thanks to a new agreement effective January 1, 2023.  The agreement provides up to four (4) weeks of paid leave for parents to bond with newborn or adopted children.  “The ability for parents to have access to paid time to care for newborn or adopted children is significant and now all of our Clerical, Carmen and ARASA members at METRA will have that.  I appreciate the hard work of all our Representatives to accomplish this. ”- TCU National President Artie Maratea

This is the first agreement providing for paid parental leave for the Brotherhood of Railroad Carmen (BRC).  “This is a historic agreement for BRC.  We are extremely proud of this accomplishment and are confident that our members will be well served by this benefit.”  BRC General President & TCU/IAM National Vice President Don Grissom
