Annulments due to Weather

Brothers and Sisters,

We are aware that several jobs were annulled over the past few weeks due to the heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions. The carrier has declined those annulments claiming "Act of God". Past precedence has been that "Act of God" only applies if all jobs/trains at the location were annulled. Therefore, if a job was annulled but other jobs worked, an annulment should be paid. We are in the process of handling these with Labor Relations, however, if you have had an annulment declined when other jobs worked at your location please give the information to your local chairman. Specific details including what jobs continued to work while you were annulled is needed to properly process the claim. Thank you!

Fraternally,

Jason Boswell
General Chairman
