Broadcast message from Timekeeping

Brothers, 

 
   Over the years there has been a lot of different instructions on Flipping and HOS from a Pool turn. This is how you should be claiming the work you preform.

To all North Little Rock and St. Louis Hub Pool Engineers and Conductors:  This is being provided in order to assist employees in understanding how to submit their claim in the following scenarios:

Pool crews turned back to the home terminal after departing but short of the AFHT: Report your tie up back at the home terminal leaving your run miles at the default trip rate value then claim the additional trip rate due from the "avaiable claims screen."  Be sure your hours of service form reflects all trains worked and any deadheading. 

Pool crews who work to the AFHT should always tie up at the AFHT.  If you are sent home, call CMS or HDC to be placed on your trip home.

Pool crews who perform turn around service at the AFHT then deadheads home: Report your tie up at the home terminal leaving your run miles at the default trip rate value then claim the additional trip rate due from the "avaiable claims screen."  Be sure your hours of service form reflects all trains worked and any deadheading. 

Pool crews who are called to protect HOS relief / Turnaround and who take their turn with them (carry turn), report your actual miles for the assignment worked.   Be sure your hours of service form reflects all trains worked and any deadheading.  Submit a non-service claim 5D - CARRY TURN 2 TRIP RATES.  Do not try to claim the 2nd trip rate on your working timeslip. Timekeeping must pay the balance owed between your earnings and two trip rates as a separate payment.  Pool crews who are called to protect another assignment such as a local, TSE, yard job, etc. will be paid the earnings of the assignment worked and their regular job will show an OA vacancy.  If their turn is run, submit a non-service claim 6D - MAKE WHOLE and Timekeeping will pay the balance owed between the shove and the flat rate make whole.
