Work Events

Brothers, 

 
   I am including a snapshot of Supt Bulletin Titled General Information Section K. 
 
The third paragraph states that no one regardless of title has the authority to change the transportation plan. 
 
This means that if the corridor or dispatcher tells you to highball a pickup or set out, you the crew are required to get authority from a field manager. The Corridor or Dispatcher no longer has the ability to do so without field manager approval. 
 
Moving forward if there is work on your train and you are told to highball the work, ask the Dispatcher or Corridor for the initials of the field manager that approved this action. 
 
If this is not done you can be charged with 1.13 failure to comply. 
 
This is a recent change I just want everyone to be aware of the situation, we have already had one crew charged.
