Two days of meetings were held between the BRS and CP/KCS on September 20 and 21 in Kansas City, MO. The meetings were to reach an implementing agreement in the event the CP gains STB authorization to assume control of KCS operations. The agreement has been finalized at this time and the details of the impact on KCS/GWWR employees have been communicated to affected employees in the consolidated region. The consolidated region includes the GWWR and three positions on KCS between Kansas City and Pittsburg, KS. The executed Agreement document will be available on our website once finalized. The Carrier’s hearing with the STB to secure approval was to be held the week of September 26-30th. A final ruling by the Board is anticipated to come in mid-January 2023. The terms of the Implementing Agreement are contingent on the Carrier securing that approval.
