COVID-19 Self-reporting


Attached is a BNSF Connect article regarding a new COVID-19 Self-reporting tool that launches today and is available via our dedicated COVID-19 webpage on the employee portal, through Workforce Hub and through BNSF Connect

If an employee has been exposed or potentially exposed to COVID-19 they should report the matter immediately to their supervisor and BNSF in order to prevent the spread of the virus and apply for required leave.

This new COVID-19 Self-Reporting Tool is another option for employees to notify us of their conditions; they still have the option of emailing the Leaves team directly at

Let us know if you have any questions.

[COVID Self Reporting]

Revised Bill # for “REEF Act” S.4860

Revised Bill # for “REEF Act” S.4860

Attached is a Mobilization message for immediate distribution to your networks regarding S.4860 – The Railroad Unemployment Equity and Fairness Act (“REEF Act”). This legislation would ensure that unemployed railroad workers receive fair and equal unemployment benefits by removing the harmful cuts known as sequestration, that single out railroad workers. It is especially important to address this issue now due to the high number of railroad workers who are furloughed or ill due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are asking everyone to contact their Senators and request them to Support (“REEF Act”) S.4840.

Thanking you in advance for your dedication to Our Union movement.
