This is what they currently have. It was put in place by prior collective bargaining:
"Under the national collective bargaining agreements, rail employees receive, on average, three weeks of paid vacation. More senior employees receive up to five weeks of vacation. All rail employees also receive a combination of holidays and personal leave days (up to 14 days for each employee, depending on craft and seniority).
Unlike employees in other industries, rail employees who are unable to work due to sickness, after a waiting period, receive up to 26 weeks of partial income replacement — under a federal law known as the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA). Railroad employers solely finance RUIA sickness benefits.
In addition to RUIA benefits, some rail employees receive, at the railroads’ expense, a supplemental sickness benefit that increases the income replacement rate above the RUIA rate (to approximately 70% of daily pay) and extends the period of payment to a maximum of 52 weeks."
The US median pay for a rail worker on a 40 hour week is $50K. GED is the required education.
