Amtrak Contract Ratifies
Updated On: Apr 29, 2018

April 24, 2018 - Today in Philadelphia the American Arbitration Association counted and certified the votes cast to accept or reject the proposed Amtrak contract. The majority of votes cast were in favor and the terms and conditions will be implimented in the very near future. Voting numbers are as follows:

Number of Ballots Mailed Out: 2963 100%
Number of Ballots Returned: 1419 48%
Number of Ballots In Favor 1371
Number of Ballots Opposed: 46
Voided Ballots: 2

There were 12 ballots that had the label peeled off rendering them as "not properly returned", and those votes were not counted. The 2 voided ballots were somehow defaced or otherwise not legible.

Amtrak has advised that the retroactive payments will be made on June 29, 2018, and the new rates go into effect on June 27, 2018.

*note: On July 1, 2018, there will be an additional 2.75% increase.

Thank you to all that participated in the process, whether you supported or opposed this agreement. Special thanks to the National Division and our own Federation officers and staff who worked through Amtrak's deceit and bad faith to bring this round of bargaining to a close.
