CSX Attendance Policy

NO!!! You CAN'T have a day off!

    The railroad practically invented the term 'on-call'. Many CSX employees do not have schedules, but are forced into working a 'list'. Most lists are on call 6 days a week, 24 hours a day, and often the employee cannot even choose their day off. It is common to be called to work during an assigned day off.

    Unscheduled days off are usually not granted for family or religious obligations. There are many CSX employees who have been unable to attend their childrens' birthday parties, their wedding anniversaries, and even funerals because they were not allowed time off.

    We've even heard of people who had to call out sick, to attend their own wedding! We're sure that some of these stories that can top even that one...

Whomever you are sir, you ARE NOT a RailRoader. You claim there is "
whining and sniveling about how safety has been diminished
because the company eliminated "safety rules ", Show the evidence.  

You sir have no idea what is truly going on. I find it VERY hard to
believe someone that has been out here as long or longer than I have,
could not understand what is REALLY going on. Unless you have been
riding the Extra Board and shoving your head further and further up
your butt for so long that you have lost ALL sight of REALITY. 

Either that or you are corp. / hq turd that has totally lost your
Integrity and Self Respect. What you are here ( in this reality ) you
WILL BE when you pass, and the only souls you will have around you are
souls that are JUST LIKE YOU.

Yes sireee.  Pensions are history for you turkeys with less than 25
years.  Look around. The evidence is in front of your face.  The
Company canít wait to get rid of us. They slip the hard hot rod to ya
nice and slow. Millimeter at a time. You donít even hardly feel it
goin
in.  The Union is here to make sure the rod stays lubed up. In it goes
deeper and deeper. Then they withdraw the rod, and you get a little
relief....like a pay increase or something like that. Takes your mind
off of being slowly fricked. Then the Union steps in, as always to
defend your arse, but they actually just lub up the Company rod and
your gonna really get it hard and fast. Like a locomotive piston. Till
the Company blows its whistle off and your gonna be standing there
with
your pants down wondering what the heck just happened.  All that work,
all those Union  dues, all those pension contributions....POOF!   Time
to set up that 401k and go back to school to learn how to be an air
traffic controller, raise wieners, perform brain surgery,  fix
computers,  or if your one of those who just lays back and smokes a
joint to start the day just relax and mooch off your family.  After
all, most of you are sheep anyway...someone who delegates away all
their independent thinking to a bunch of looney tune blowhards letís
face it, donít have s whole lot of brains to begin with.   Once a
sheep
always a sheep.  So the next time you see your TM just remember...that
little pecker is just waiting to give you a good healthy screwing. 
And
if you donít have 25 years in today as of now, your cherry has already
been thoroughly plowed by the Man,  you are damaged goods, and
unemployable.  But dont worry. The Union has your back.  And a jar of
lubrication.

Yes. Pensions are history.  Anyone working now without 25 years will
not
be around long enough to quality.  Better open up that 401K and start
investing.

Please quit saying the company will do away with retirement. RR is not
only class I but short lines also pay into RR.  It has nothing to do
with any certain railroad. I can't even comprehend this thinking
account managers and anyone that is employed by a railroad that pays
into RR gets it.  So for the person that said they will get rid of
retirement is crazy and makes zero sense. So they are going to get rid
of retirement just to show TE and screw their own retirement? Yea OK!
Railroads have zero control over RR or RRB. Sometimes I can't even
believe I waste my time to comment on this site.  For you guys that
think you will see a train with no one on it in your life time well
keep wasting your time and time your could be spending with friends or
family. Fog it cuts out, snow it cuts out, and communication problems
doesn't work. Same people that everyone calls idiots on this site but
you claim they are going to run train with zero crew members. Amazing.
T&E, carmen, yardmasters, dispatchers, signal maintainers, MOW, siganl
maintainer supervisor, Roadmaster, trainmaster, clerks, cmc, cmc
supervisors, STO, general managers, plumbers, rr police. I could go on.
ALL get RR. Yea they are going to get rid of RR for TE just to show us.
They are not that stupid.

Just to correct, csx Conductor. And also commenting for those that have
been out here for less than 10 yrs, DO NOT comment about other peoples
attitude about this job, because you have never walked in their shoes
and have not been thru what they have,and most likely will not fill
your own,cause ya'll will be lucky to make 15yrs let alone get your 20
or 30 in. Like the wise man said previous, need to be smart and get some
education in a field that will need you. Rail roads are getting and WILL
get to the point where they will not, ( esp. at what your getting paid
now). BE SMART your Family's are counting on you.

This is to OBY and anyone else. My opinion is that CSX and other rail
roads that have been involved in ridiculous and illogical behavior ( to
us the normal thinking people ) is to further their long term agenda of
going totally autonomous. These companies WILL NOT be satisfied until
they take as much of the Human factor out as they can. They are already
talking about doing the same thing in the trucking industry. If the rail
roads can show that business is suffering ( which they are causing, VERY
obvious at CSX )cause of the human factor it will give more cause to go
autonomous. One man crews will only give them more ammunition to
support the companies claim that going full autonomous is the only way
to increase efficiency and safety for the public. Reality is that the
company (CSX for sure)will be able to do away with the Union, Health
Care and finally Retirement. If anyone disagrees I would welcome any
kind of input. I do fear very much for the public cause, CSX will put
the cheapest crap they can get away with into this system of the
future, My GOD help us all.

Conductor 1-10 that's been out here 4 1/2 years. You have the outlook
you have because you have only been here 4 1/2 years, you don't know
how good it was and could still be! We were way more productive in 6
hour days before than we are now and we are working twice as long and
twice as hard not getting done nearly what we use to. The system we
were using before worked a lot better than the system we use now. Most
of us complain because we know that this railroad is being run wrong
and it is not sustainable. They are doing what they are doing for a
quick buck and then they will leave and this place will be in the mess
it is now until someone with long term goals takes over. Looking at
what we have lost everyone should be disgruntled
Quits
Real lunch breaks (who works 8 hours and gets 20 minutes of break)
Boots
Thanks awards
Cookouts
Family day
The list goes on man, they have taken every incentive away. 
They do still pay us most of what they should but that's it. Now they
are talking about 1 man crews, they keep cutting and making the ones
left have to do more work to compensate. 
We work harder than most CSX employees and are paid less.

To ALL the Young and Mid-Range Professionals that has made the
discussion to make Railroading a career. 

http://trn.trains.com/news/news-wire/2018/09/06-csx-expects-ptc-to-pave-way-for-1-person-crews-autonomous-operations


All there is when dealing with corps.(esp. the railroad,lower case for
a reason) Is Employees are nothing more than laborers to make the
share-holders more money which in turn the share-holders pay the CEO
BIG BUCKS so the LAZY-ASS share-holders do not have to get their hands
dirty.

You can damn well bet that the above link WILL come true no matter HOW
MANY PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO DIE OR LOOSE THEIR JOBS. 

WAKE THE HELL UP!!
