  • Amtrak, BRS Agree to Arbitration Process for Contract Dispute
    Updated On: Sep 18, 2013

    In July, the Passenger Rail Labor Bargaining Coalition (PRLBC), consisting of the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen (BRS) and the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes (BMWED), made the commitment to explore the possibility of resolving their disputes with Amtrak through the arbitration processes contemplated by Sections 7 and 8 of the RLA, 45 U.S.C. §§ 157, 158.

    In September, the PRLBC finalized an agreement with Amtrak to arbitrate and settle contract disputes with the BRS and the BMWED.

    This arbitration agreement provides that a three-man panel or "Board" will meet to hear testimony and review evidence and arguments supporting the positions of the respective parties, then make a decision as to which of the two patterns that BRS represented Amtrak employees will fall under, the current Amtrak pattern established by other organizations or the National Pattern.
