You and your members should be receiving the attached letter in the coming days. It looks like it could be a good deal for those who are already eligible for retirement or are within a few months of retirement.

Please find attached a January 22, 2016 letter, regarding a TYE Buyout Program, being sent to select groups of TYE employees. We expect the letters to start arriving to employees on this Friday/Saturday.

As I’ve mentioned already, besides the terms and conditions being outlined in the letter, there is important contact information at the bottom of page 2 of the letter which provides specific telephone numbers for United Healthcare and RRB, as well as for general questions. Also, we’ve created a new email address: TYEbuyout@bnsf.com.

After you’ve reviewed the letter, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
