Railway employees req'd to be on call 24/7. Phone req'd to receive and accept calls for work. Can we claim Phone Bills as eligible employment expenses?

Railway employees are required to be reachable via phone 24/7 to accept calls when the company requires it. It is not scheduled work therefore the only way for an employee to be reachable and able to accept work is by using a phone. Therefore is it justified to claim cell phone bills as an employment expense?
