Railroad Workers Fight Proposed Job Consolidation

There are 1 comment on the Counterpunch story from Oct 13, 2015, titled Railroad Workers Fight Proposed Job Consolidation. In it, Counterpunch reports that:

But you would be wrong. A two year job guarantee has been promised if the Master Mechanic TA passes. Asked why the Machinists Union went along with this agreement, a member was told that under it "everybody would have a job", a reference to the layoffs already under way by CSX. Layoffs are what CSX management counts on to sway a vote on the TA. Maintenance workers on the railroads are on the front line for public safety. Often shop workers are the only people standing between defective equipment and the people who live near the tracks.
