Run Through Terminal

When you are bringing a train inbound and are instructed to take the train past the far side of the terminal, you are entitled to a basic day of pay.

You will need the train ID, time you leave the terminal, location of where you leave the train, and authorizing manager or dispatcher. (You can find the terminal limits in the Section IV DFW Hub Agreement.)

Difference in pay

When working regular turn in through freight service and the extra board is exhausted and there are people laid off in front of you, you may be called to step up. You do not have to answer the phone if you are not first out. But if you do step up, your turn should continue up the board until it is called to go out of town. If the conductor on you turn, makes more money than you do, you are entitled to the difference. You will only be paid for overtime and tow-in, not held away or other arbitraries.

Example of time slip: Please allow difference in pay, per DFW Hub agreement, for being stepped up. I stepped up off my turn TP17 on 8-1-12 on train MFWHO 01 at 1800 hours My turn was called out on AAMSA 01 on 8-2-12 at 0400 hours with conductor John.

Rules class

If the company lays you off to attend rules class you are entitled to what your turn makes, if you are on an extra board you are entitled to a basic day pay for every day you are laid off.

Example of time slip: (Regular turn) As per DFW Hub agreement, please allow difference in pay to be paid due to being laid off for rules class on 8-2-12 and 8-3-12. (Extra board) Please allow basic days’ pay for each day of being laid off for rules class on 8-2-12 and 8-3-12.

More than three switching moves

You are entitled to a basic day pay if you deadhead from your home terminal to the away-from-home terminal, then deadhead back to the home terminal. The penalty is for not being used for train service.
