TCU Carmen and Clerical members have ratified contracts with the national freight carriers by resounding margins.
- 86% of Carmen voted in favor of the contract.
- 93% of Clerical members voted in favor of the contract.
“I am gratified by these record votes,” said TCU President Robert Scardelletti. “It was a hard fight to achieve a contract with wages and benefits worthy of our members’ ratification. And we did fight, all the way to a Presidential Emergency Board. The results speak for themselves.”
The carriers have been notified of the results, and they have sixty days to issue retroactive checks, and ninety days to pay the bonus. TCU will work with the carriers to expedite the implementation of the wage increases, and the handling of the retroactive and bonus checks.
