Metro north announced that in September they are installing Biometric timeclocks systemwide. All employees will be required to scan in and out and this includes Train and Engine service employees. I hear that this is going to be implemented on the LIRR sometime this year based on the Metro north model. Its about time and long overdue. The carriers are forced to pay employees back to their terminals-even if they don't return to the terminal. This leads to increased overtime and expenditures and its unfair to the ridership and taxpayers subsidizing the rail operations. Maybe now if employees have to travel back to WSY in the middle of the night simply to scan out, they will agree to negotiations modifying the home terminal rule. If you expect to be paid back to a terminal, then you should be expected to travel to that terminal. Not claim the overtime back and simply go home.
