New Individual Paid Sick Days for BMWED
BNSF Railway is pleased to announce a new tentative agreement
that is subject to ratification with the Brotherhood of Maintenance
of Way Employes Division—International Brotherhood of Teamsters
(BMWED), which includes paid sick days.
Building upon existing BNSF paid time off and sickness benefits,
BMWED members will receive individual paid days off to use as sick
days and gain the ability to convert up to three personal leave
days to sick days each year. Today's announcement is part of larger
discussions about modernizing the work environment.
With a successful conclusion of the BMWED agreement, BNSF will
have negotiated paid sick day and work modernization agreements
with all twelve labor unions that represent BNSF employees.
