Shots Fired.....

Our Vice Local Chairman, got assessed attendance points for showing late after being called at the Away Terminal.  He got in the van a half hour early, stop to pick up some food at WaWa, and then was late to the train.  Troll's favorite Traimaster assessed him points....


Our Vice GCA has instructed us to get in the van at on duty time and not stop for food....

If the carrier insists we get in early, we are to call in a new HOS start time to Crew management.  If they don't GCA will be reporting violations to the FRA.


I started ophph with nuthin, and I can safely say I have most of it left....

Changing HOS times isn't going to work. You will be defeated by FRA's 30-minute commute time interpretation of HOSL.

Friends of Railway Administrators reasoning is that there is an "average" commute time in Real 'Murica going tu the Home Terminal of 30 minutes. Therefore, at the AFHT, they allow 30 minute commute time in advance of on-duty time for commuting tu the on-duty location.

If they haven't band stopping like LAMCO does three or four times a year, best advice is tu get in the jitney 30 minutes ahead of on-duty time, stop for vittles, and get tu work on time.
