YARD DAY

TRAINMEN’S AGREEMENT ARTICLE 44

 

A YARD DAY MAY BE CLAIMED WHEN SERVICE IS PERFOMED WITHIN THE LIMITS OF A YARD THAT EMPLOYS YARD CREWS.  ONE YARD DAY CLAIM OCCURS WHEN ROAD CREWS ARE REQUIRED TO YARD (DOG CATCH) A TRAIN RECEIVED WITHIN YARD LIMITS.  ANOTHER YARD DAY OCCURS WHEN ROAD

CREWS ARE REQUIRED TO MAKE MORE THAN THREE WORK EVENTS (PICK UPS & SET OUTS, OTHER THAN BAD ORDERS) WHEN YARD CREWS ARE ON DUTY.  IN ADDITION, THE CREW OF AN “OVER THE ROAD SOLID RUN THROUGH TRAIN” IF REQUIRED TO PERFORM MORE THAN ONE OF THE MOVES LISTED BELOW (PLB 219), IS ENTITLED TO A YARD DAY.  ALSO, IF A CREW IS REQUIRED TO SET OUT CARS NOT INTENDED FOR THEIR TRAIN, THEY ARE ENTITLED TO A YARD DAY.  CLAIM INFORMATION SHOULD CONTAIN ALL MOVES MADE INCLUDING BEGINNING AND ENDING CAR #’s OF EACH PICK UP OR SET OUT, TERMINAL, YARD TRACK USED, TIMES, AND WHO OR WHAT AUTHORIZED THE WORK.

EXAMPLE 1:  CALLED ON DUTY AS A (POSITION) FROM (BOARD/POOL, SPACE) ON DUTY AT (DATE/TIME) FOR DOG CATCH SERVICE.  CREW WAS INSTRUCTED BY (WHO GAVE INSTRUCTIONS) AT (DATE/TIME) TO PROCEED TO (LOCATION/MP) TO TAKE OF THE (TRAIN ID, ENGINE #) AND YARD TRAIN IN (TRACK).  ALL WORK TOOK PLACE BETWEEN (DATE/TIME) AND (DATE/TIME).  CLAIM 100 MILE YARD DAY FOR PERFORMING WORK RESERVED FOR YARD CREWS WHILE YARD CREWS WERE ON DUTY. PUBLIC LAW BOARD 219 SET THE CURRENT RESTRICTIONS FOR ROAD CREWS WORKING WITHIN INTITIAL AND FINAL TERMINALS.  BESIDES PICK UPS AND SET OUTS, A ROAD CREW CAN RECEIVE OR LEAVE THEIR TRAIN ON MULTIPLE TRACKS, RECEIVE OR LEAVE CARS IN INTERCHANGE WITH A FOREIGN RAILROAD, TRANSFER CARS WITHING SWITCHING LIMITS, AND SPOT OR PULL CARS AT INDUSTRIES.  BE AWARE THAT PICKING UP OR SETTING OUT THE TRAIN FROM MULTIPLE TRACKS, WHEN ONE TRACK WOULD HAVE HELD THE TRAIN, IS ONLY CONSIDERED ON MOVE NO MATTER HOW MANY TRACKS ARE INVOLVED.

 

EXAMPLE 2:  CALLED ON DUTY AS A (POSITION) FROM (BOARD/POOL, SPACE) WORKING ON THE (TRAIN ID ENGINE#) ON DUTY AT (TERMINAL) AT (DATE/TIME).  CREW ON THE (TRAIN ID) WAS REQUIRED TO MAKE 4 MOVES IN SWITCHING OUT TRAIN (BEFORE DEPARTURE/UPON ARRIVAL) AT (TERMINAL).  CREW WAS INSTRUCTED BY (TITLE & NAME) TO MAKE (# OF SET OUTS AND/OR # OF PICK UPS) AT (TERMINAL/CIRC-7) INTO THE FOLLOWING TRACKS: #1: (S/O OR P/U # OF CARS, CAR# TO CAR#, TO YRD#, TRACK#, AT DATE/TIME)

 

(SHOW 3 MORE WORK EVENTS.) ALL SERVICE WAS PERFORMED ON (DATE) BETWEEN (TIME AND TIME).  CLAIM 100 MILE YARD DAY ACCOUNT OF WORK PERFORMED IN A YARD WHERE YARD CREWS ARE EMPLOYED AND ON DUTY DAILY.

 

NOTE: WHEN YOU CLAIM A YARD DAY FOR DOING THE WORK OF SWITCHMEN, THERE IS A CLAIM FOR THE SWITCHMEN BECAUSE YOU HAVE “STOLEN” THEIR RECIPROCAL CLAIM FOR WORK.  IN THIS CASE, PLEASE MAKE SURE A SECOND SET OF DOCUMENTS FOR THE SWITCHMEN’S LOCAL CHAIRMAN SO THAT HEM MAY PURSUE THE CLAIM IN THEIR BEHALF.

 

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS:  CALL SHEET, WORK ORDER, YARD TRACK LISTS SHOWING CARS P/U, OR NOTES MADE WHEN THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE GIVEN, NOTING WHO GAVE THEM, PAY STUB SHOWING DENIAL.
