Where your union dues go:
RESERVE BOARD CLAIM
If you have placed a standing bid for the engineer's reserve board, you can now make the following claim:
"I claim engineer reserve board pay of $2514.68 for second half January (current half) 2015 due to over 40 trainmen are on the furlough/cut off board at various locations within the LA HUB. Therefore, a Reserve Board should have been established beginning the second half January 2015 and I should have been assigned per standing bid."
Make the claim in CMTS on a non-service time slip in the claim category "FE - No Reserve Board Dispute"
