CSX announces agreement on paid sick leave with BMWED and BRC

A major source of contention between United States Class I railroads and 12 railroad labor unions leading up to the brokered deal between the parties, in order to avert a strike, in early December, focused on the number of sick days railroad workers were allowed to have. Signs of progress on that front were made clear this week, with Jacksonville-based Class I freight railroad carrier CSX saying it has come to terms on agreements for two unions—the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way (BMWED), which represents engineering employees, and the Brotherhood of Railway Carmen (BRC), which represents mechanical workers—with both unions representing around a cumulative 5,000 railroad workers.
