    They would go to top rate quicker.

    This is actually a pretty good rumor!

    I have been told two different storys....
    1. Depending on where they are in progression they would receive a raise and go to a 3yr progression.
    2. That they are under a different contract and would stay on a 4 yr.

    I would have to think that if they lowered the progression to 3 years they would have to knock one year off of everyone in progression currently. Someone who gets hired as a full time employee as of August 1 (or whenever the new contract kicks in) shouldn't be at top rate as someone who got it right before the contract was voted in. Just my opinion

    Nothing is TA'ed yet, and the contract hasn't even been fully negotiated or put up to a vote. right now its all speculation

    I heard it was going to a five year progression instead of 4.

    4 years is too long, 5 would be ridiculous. They can't get people to come out driving as it is, now make them wait another year to hit top rate. Good luck!!

    They'd be glad to do it in exchange for voting Yes to the creation of a new driver underclass for new hires.

    There are people who would vote for a 10 year progression. As long it doesn't affect them, some don't care.

    I hear it every contract year. "Won't affect me."

    I’d bet that any driver who will finish progression at the current top rate stays on a 4 year path. That 3 year stuff will be for the underclass!

    Pretty sure that Teamsters under the railroad contract have 5 year progression, would not be surprised to see it here.

    But do they work as a part time railroad engineers for 4,5 or 8 years and then go into ft. Work???
