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...

We're made to do whatever now.  We don't make no where near 50 an
hour. 
It may not be the nice thing to say but no one gives two shits about
the bottom half.  For a few bucks they can do away with the conductor
now.   The senior half can make a little more they don't care who gets
cut.

IT SEEMS THE COMPANY HAS APPROACHED THE BLET ONCE AGAIN WANTING THE
HOURLY RATE!

From my understanding, the General Chairman representing the south want
this?  ARE THEY NUTS
The word is that it will be under $50 per hour with no work rules, and
overtime after 10 hours.  For starters, you will become a slave to the
company, and they don't even have to work you past 10 hours.  This
will also eliminate thousands of jobs because the slaves will be in
place.    Why do you think the carrier wants this so bad?  It isn't
going to benefit the employees!  WAKE UP GENERAL CHAIRMAN, unless you
are just selling everyone up the river again?  Remember if this passes
through, there will no longer be the need for a union.

Gonna get CSX in a lawsuit.  That's some funny shit right there.  CSX
doesn't give a damn if they get sued.  They're in the middle of all
kinds of suits and there is a lot more coming.   Google CSX news.   The
Fmla cases are coming.  46 former employees are suing them now.  They
continue to wrongfully terminate men and they know it's going to cost
them and their managers.  When you can pay a man on his deathbed 300
million what's the big deal with some ass hole TM causing suits.

Trainmaster David Benson is one of the dumbest cocksuckers that I've
ever met. I can't believe that CSX still has him on the team. That fat
fuck is going to get CSX into a lawsuit.

The 2 greatest factors in 94.2% (I made that number up on the spot) of
accidents in most industries are distractions/loss of focus, or fatigue
and fatigue is one of the major causes of distractions/loss of focus.
Other factors can cause a loss of focus, like use of a cell phone,
listening to music while working, horseplay, issues in our lives
outside of work like health or family problems, etc. 

Not sure how to completely eliminate all of these factors, but fatigue
could be greatly reduced without changing very much at all.

Anyone that is subject to being called into work knows that a lot of
times you sit around waiting on a call that never comes and then
finally when you are tired and ready to sleep you get the call.

If we were to have our extra boards divided by 4 and your bid was for a
time slot then fatigue would be nearly eliminated. 

Example: An extra board has 16 people on it so 4 bids would be for
0600-1400, 4 bids would be for 1400-2200, 4 bids would be for 2200-0600
and 4 bids would be available for call any time. No 2 people on any one
slot would have the same days off. This would work to reduce fatigue
and improve your overall quality of life and health, you could also
plan appointments or family functions, and so much more. 

This would not negatively impact availability of manpower to CSX
because they would have available to them 4 people per 8 hour time slot
and up to an additional 4 people from the 24hr slot. If both are
exhausted then they would revert to calling the first out rested from
the other 2 time slots. 

This model could be modified to fit specific needs, for example each
time slot could be adjusted to different hours and furthermore each
slot could be staffed according to needs, maybe more people for the
busiest time slot, and less for the slot with lighter needs.

My sole purpose in writing this is to hopefully get the attention of
people system wide and possibly with a glimmer of hope get people
thinking about it so maybe, just maybe the ball can start rolling on
this idea or any variation similar.

In my opinion, had a proposal like this been presented in our contract,
we would have been better of than with anything we got and it doesn't
in any way hurt CSX for manpower.   

Thank you for your time in reading this, I know it was more than most
would like to read on here but I do appreciate it.

P.S. An added bonus would be that most of us would call in sick less
because there are times that we have to call in sick because we are
tired or have something going on that we can't miss.

On my 40th year. I was always a heavy hitter. Worked a lot, made a lot
of money. Always tried to stay healthy, got my rest whenever able to,
tried to get decent exercise. Now as I look at retirement next year, I
wonder how I did it? Sooooo many times running trains at high speed
drifting in and out of sleep. looking over at the Conductor snoozing
away. Dying to get done so I could go sleep. Meeting myself coming and
going. And even so after 40 years of this madness, NOBODY of any
authority is taking the fatigue problem seriously! Now we have inward
facing camera's (reason I no longer work the road) I could never
survive in this environment! Anytime I stopped at a Stop Signal, feet
went up, laid back, shut my eyes until Conductor alerted me to a better
signal. Those little naps are what made the difference. Now you can't
even do that anymore. The idiots who run these railroads are not
helping us one bit! I have NO SYMPATHY for the carriers when they get
sued for millions and lose. They create these unsafe conditions and
they fight anyone who tries to address the problems.
