NCC said that BLET, a railroad labor union representing engineers and trainmen, has ratified its collective bargaining agreement with U.S. freight railroads, concluding bargaining for more than 20,000 rail employees. And it added that voting results for SMART-TD were split up, with its first contract, covering roughly 28,000 employees—comprised of conductor, brakemen, engine service, and yardmen groups (with around two-thirds of membership participating)—not ratifying its contract, coming up less than 1% short. NCCC said that the second agreement, which covers around 1,300 yardmasters, was ratified.
