Rocky Mountaineer and Locked-Out Workers Reach Tentative Settlement

According to this story, the Rocky Mountaineer rail service has reached a tentative contract settlement with the onboard workers it locked out more than a year ago. The ratification vote on the contract will take place on Saturday. I’ll post information on the settlement as I come across it.

UPDATE: According to this story from Monday, the workers ratified the contract. A message  on Twitter indicated that the new contract includes a 10% pay cut, a requirement that onboard workers share their tips with other staff,  and a “payout” (I’m not sure if this is a contract signing bonus, a buyout option for employees who want to leave, or something else), but I haven’t seen any official confirmation of any of these details.
