1.10.2018 AMTRAK Tentative Agreement Update


After over 3 years of bargaining with the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak), District Lodge 19, together with our coalition partners (TCU, TWU, IBEW, SMART, IBB, AND THE IBFO) have reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) subject to membership ratification. This TA allows our members to keep their Health Care Plan intact, which was their number one concern. It also allows for moderate General Wage Increases over the length of the agreement. PDGC Lacey stated, “I am very pleased we have reached this tentative agreement for our Amtrak membership. I would like to thank General Chairman Michael McCarthy for all his hard work bringing this round of negotiations to a successful conclusion with our coalition partners.”

“I am pleased to report, on January 4, 2018, we reached a tentative agreement with Amtrak. I believe we achieved all our goals pertaining to general wage increases and health care. We are anticipating putting this agreement out for ratification, to the membership, as soon as possible. I would like to thank all of our Amtrak membership for their patience during this process” - General Chairman Michael McCarthy
