Carrier COVID 19 responses
Updated On: Mar 30, 2020

CSXT has created a link on the employee gateway for employees regarding its intended practices for the coronavirous (COVID -19). CSXT claims additional hand sanitizer, wall dispensers, individual hand sanitizer wipes and 5 oz bottles of hand sanitizer have been ordered, in the attached document. This reactive measure is likely untimely, as we wait for the sanitizing products to be delivered employees will be infected.

CSXT has also issued a FAQ's regarding COVID-19,the CAPS policy will not apply to employees infected or required to quarantine as a result of COVID-19.

Both documents are attached for your reference, if you encounter a yard facility or away from home lodging facility not properly sanitizing please notify your BLET Local Chairman or Vice local Chairman immediately so it can be reported.

Above all stay safe and healthy Brothers and Sisters, use best practices for personal hygiene and sanitize you work spaces frequently. This is a global pandemic which at this point will continue to spread. No Carrier has issued a combat plan WHEN it is discovered an employee is infected with the virus, which is very alarming. We have requested when this occurs, the impacted terminal and or lodging facility be immediately shut done and quarantined until a deep cleaning and sanitation is performed. As well as any employees who have had any interaction with the infected employee be quarantined for the appropriate time frame.  

We will provide any and all updates, provided by the Carrier's, as this very fluid situation evolves. Unfortunately, to date no action plan or preventative measures have been issued to the BLET by the Conrail Shared Assets.   

UPDATE: Attached as well is a policy received from Conrail by a letter dated March 19,2020.
