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...

You're a dumbass.  An operator is a skilled trade. It can be used
anywhere in the world in any industry.  Takes years to become an
operating engineer.   A locomotive engineer's FRA cert is shit at
best.  I've trained chimps in two days to run a train.  One cannot
intelligently compare the two.

I just read that BNSF & UP are offering $25,000 signing bonuses to
attract railroaders from other railroads. They have worker shortages
due to increased business. It didn't mention locations.

Certification?  That's a joke.  A conductor or engineer IS NOT A SKILL.
That certification is worthless.

Read Carefully!

Worked undercover with the help of union officers using my alias email,
while receiving all the [reply all] emails from disgruntled TE&Y
employees...Never trust your union officer...a majority of them are
under constant financial hardships, and the carrier will play them like
a fine-tuned piano!

Yeah right! 51 bucks an hour? Are you serious, lol! More like 22 an
hour. Don't post carp on here like that. 

This is a company mole trying to make sure more people dont quit. They
know most furloughed employees are not coming back and the pressure is
being felt so this idiot put this on there to help retain employees a
while longer. When May comes there will be a post about some delay in
the negotiations but back pay will be offered. Don't fall for this bs.

I was a Bridge Tender who saved a CSX railroad bridge from total fire
destruction, on a heavily traveled mainline to Tampa. I had worked in
other positions, Train Dispatch, Station Agent, etc, with a northern
railroad before I took a merger buyoff.

This was January, 2001, near Jacksonville. I was "God" for about 24
hours with trash talk of praise, etc. I got nothing... I developed
blood clots as a Tender and had to take blood thinners. I was told I
wasn't allowed to work
due to the medicine. I wasn't offered any other positions or transfer.
Guess what? They held a investigation for absenteeism and I got
dismissal. Only to be sold out by BMW Union and CSX. I lost everything
I owned and was homeless. What thanks.....

well the utu Lc and his bitch (xlc) laid off union again. Those two are
off every weekend union.   The Lc marks off a lot Mon-Thurs too.  and
manages to mark up just in time to catch a deadhead or a mailtrain. 
The Midget that represents the ble is off all the time too. 

Is it like this on other subdivisions?

Before signing anything, you better consider how much your livelihood,
your family, spending time with family are worth. Personally I wouldn’t
sell my soul for no less than 50 bucks an hour. Once the Railroad has
you then your life is done. 30 years experience talking here. Just what
is your freedom worth?

Sounds to me that the SMART Union is being Smart by holding off on
negotiations.. BLET JUMPED TO QUICK ON THIS..!!! makes a Employee
wonder how much of a kick back that they got.. We BLETCHLEY suckers
need to atleast get 46 dollars an hour just to break even at where
we're at now..!!!! You're going to lose big... Sit down and do the
math...

Only the BLET has reached an agreement. The not so SMART is not
negotiating. Just because they reached a deal doesn't mean it will
pass a vote. That's up to the members.

plus they can shove it!

What does all this mean? Will there be no more yard jobs, just one big
job board, and you get whatever you get called for? Won't engineers
have to be qualified for other runs? What exactly are we giving up?
What about vacation weeks? We need details.

Give up what rights?   We don't have shit.  You best vote yes. We
can't get a better offer in this political field.  That's more money
than any of us deserve.  The GCs have went above and beyond for us.  I
think they deserve our thanks for all their sleepless nights working on
this deal.  I'm truly grateful for their leadership and all they
selflessly  do.

Just received information today 4-11-18.  The proposed hourly rate of 
$36.45/hr has been agreed upon.  There will be a vote by the membership
sometime in May.  It was a hard fought fight by  our elected
representation.  I'd like to thank each and everyone for their
determination in negotiating such a long past due hourly rate.
All union members should be proud. This is a historic victory.

Thanks, I needed another dip shit to tell me not to believe the post on
here.   I come on here and read this non-sense for deviant
entertainment purposes only.  It's mind blowing how stupid the men I
work with are. If there is ever an hourly rate and someone ends up on
the street.  BIG DEAL!!!  If I end up on the street.  BIG DEAL!!!

Hourly

It wasn't a week ago someone posted how the unions put a stop to all
the hourly rate rumors.  Now it's on Foote's desk for approval. 

No one cares about the new hire getting laid off.  If we can make a
lirttle more screw them.
