BLET, Indiana & Ohio agree to tentative contract

The Indiana & Ohio Railway (I&O) and Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) have reached a tentative contract, the union announced last week.

If ratified, the agreement would govern rates of pay and work rules for 50 engineers, conductors and trainees, according to a BLET press release.

Ballots have been mailed to members working for the I&O, with voting set to conclude June 12.

The BLET organized the I&O in August 2001. I&O members belong to BLET Division 282.

A subsidiary of Genesee & Wyoming Inc., the I&O is a 570-mile short line in western Ohio.
