The interim agreement is retroactive to January 1, 2010 and runs until December 31, 2014. In addition, the Teamsters agreed in 2008 to a five-year contract with heavy goods vehicles for an average annual increase of less than 2%; BLET calculated with BNSF, CSX and Norfolk Southern at only 2.2% per annum over a five-year period; And President Obama imposed a two-year pay freeze on federal employees.
