Training Of Company Officers


January 13, 2000

Dear Sirs and Brothers:

It has again come to this office's attention that Company officers are
approaching Locomotive Engineers to permit them to run the engine in the
hope of qualifying as a Locomotive Engineer.

The Collective Agreement does not provide for Locomotive Engineers to
train Company officers.

Down the road those individuals will be the ones walking past you to run
the trains in the event of a strike. Also, they are not union members.

If the Company wants to qualify those individuals, they can put a
qualified Road Foreman with them on the understanding that the crew will
not be held responsible.

If you require clarification regarding this message, please do not
hesitate to call this office. I remain


Dennis Curtis
