Employees working the C train

Recommended Posts

I was wondering..are the T/O’s and C/R’s on the C train just ppl who couldn’t pick the A train or just ppl that prefer the C train?

Whatever is available in assignment is what they are given. As far as choice between (A) or (C); they have to operate both depending on what assignments are available. No Operator just works the (A) unless they’re high up in seniority and they choose to operate the (A) exclusively.

Employees pick their work assignments in seniority order. 

1) Vacation days are picked
2) Regular Days Off (RDO) Monday-Tuesday, Thursday-Friday, etc
3) Work assignments for each day. Note, work assignments are divided by line so if someone picks a C job on Tuesday they will only be doing that unless a GO is in effect. Then people whose jobs are cancelled are reassigned. So a person could pick to work the (A) on one day the (C) the next and then the (G) . Typically if you pick a fixed schedule or RDO relief you will be jumping around in this manner since not everyone will get Saturday-Sunday off. That means some jobs are uncovered Tuesday-Wednesday and need to be filled and on Monday-Tuesday you will be needed elsewhere. 



4) Transit can assign a crew to any line in their division as needed as Transit views all its employees as qualified on all routes because they went over it at least once in school car (that means you were physically on the train, you may not have been able to see or learn anything). You may go 3 years without ever going that track again but...good luck!
