Re: Assigned freight pool Mountain sub.

Dear Sir:

This letter is to inform you that, in accordance with Section B) of AGREED PRACTICE #4 ASSIGNED FREIGHT POOL MOUNTAIN SUBDIVISION, the members of BLE Division 657 wish to cancel this agreement effective May 27, 2002.

The union has taken this position as a result of numerous problems recently experienced getting train 471 and the west lift at Golden in place so the assigned crew can cover the work intended in the agreement.

I am available to meet with you or any other company representative to discuss the specific problems we have been experiencing with this agreement. Should we be able to find workable solutions to the problems, I will report to our next regular meeting May 21, 2002 and seek guidance from the members on this issue.

Please contact me so we may arrange a time to meet and discuss this important issue.


G.A. Edwards
