Re: Diversion Trains

As an interim measure prior to a Diversion Agreement being reached
between the UTU and the BLE and the Company the following has been
agreed to by all parties:

Southward trains -- all time paid in addition to the fixed rate trip
from on duty time to the time entered on to the Leduc Sub.

Northward trains -- all time paid in addition to the fixed rate trip
from time entered on to the Willingdon Sub to time off duty. In
addition, if the train is delayed at South Edmonton on the Leduc
Sub waiting to enter on to the Willingdon Sub (e.g. at 23rd ave.),
for in excess of one hour, all time in excess of the one hour will
also be paid in addition to the fixed rate trip.

To claim this convert the time spent to miles and on the secondary
tie up screen us the "SS" mileage claim code. In the remarks section
at the bottom of the screen explain the claim. As an example:

SS = diversion time on the Willingdon sub. 2100-2230

For trips made in the last few weeks you will have to submit a
miscellaneous "SS" claim citing the train, times involved and miles
claimed.
