CLEVELAND — Members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen have a new hourly-rate collective bargaining agreement with the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern Railroad.

The agreement governs rates of pay and work rules for approximately 300 locomotive engineers, assistant engineers, conductors and brakemen. It runs through Dec. 31, 2019. The contract provides general wage increases between 30 and 50 percent dependent upon craft and assignment, as well as overtime rates and general holiday rates. The agreement also provides all covered employees with two consecutive days off in their scheduled workweek.

Under the new agreement, employees will have the ability to participate in the employee share purchase plan and will receive a company match. For those who maximize their participation in the plan, the company match equates to an approximate additional 2 percent annual value.

Canadian Pacific bought the DM&E in 2008. It operates in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri.
