A dispatch from Sacramento, Calif.,
to the Oregon ian says:
The grievance committee of the Or
der of Railway Conductor's and the
Order of Railway Trainmen, has re
ceived a report that the Southern Pa
cific has granted Important conces
sions. According to the report, conductors
and brakemmen on passenger trains
will be on duty 17, instead of 21 days
a month, conductors being granted
fl.'iO per month and braketnen $90.'0.
Freight crews are to have full 10
hours between trips. Theoretically
they get this now, but calls are made
two hours earlier:
A relief crew was put on between
Red Bluff and Ashalnd for passenger
service, so crews can have three con
secutive days' vacation each month.
These crews have been making 206
miles daily, although 107 miles is usu
ally reckoned as a day's run. No ex
tra pay has been allowed. Increased
overtime will now be paid.
Train crews asked for these conces
sions In anticipation of heavy traffic
during the summer. Engineers and
firemen are paid mileage and have
asked no concessions.
