CSXT REACHES CONDUCTOR-ONLY AGREEMENT ON RF&P PORTION OF SYSTEM

 CSXT REACHES CONDUCTOR-ONLY AGREEMENT ON RF&P PORTION OF SYSTEM
 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX Transportation Inc. (CSXT) announced today that the United Transportation Union has ratified a "conductor-only" agreement that will eliminate brakeman positions for through-freight operations on the former Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac Railway Company (RF&P).
 The RF&P was acquired by CSX in October 1991.
 The agreement permits CSXT to operate through-freight trains with a conductor and engineer on its strategic rail line between Alexandria and Richmond, Va. It only applies to former RF&P train-service employees, and does not include train length, car limit or work-event restrictions.
 Under terms of the agreement, which took effect last Saturday, employees may elect to leave active service and receive a voluntary severance payment in the amount of $60,000. It also provides employment opportunities for all surplus employees in lieu of hiring new employees when the need arises.
 Conductor-only agreements now cover 60 percent of CSXT's 9,100 train-service employees.
 CSXT and its 35,000 employees provide rail transportation and distribution services over an 18,800 route-mile network in 20 states, the District of Columbia and Ontario, Canada. CSXT is a business unit of CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX), headquartered in Richmond, Va.
