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...

At Cumberland:  The layoffs reportedly took place as workers arrived for
the 3 PM shift.  Eyewitnesses say there were four railroad policemen in
attendance to provide security.   

First I've heard of railroad police providing security for lay offs. 
CSX knows it's going to get ugly on both sides.

Company should not be expected to tolerate employees showing up late 
for their assignment(s), OR dicking around at the yard office. 
 
However, if not given adequate time for proper job briefings, et al, &
more once on duty, write it up, submit the experiences\info to the
proper union rep. and/or legislator, government authority.  Bombard
'em. Complaint(s) from just one person usually doesn't cut it.
Provide some ammo. Much better substantiation with documentation.

Posting on this website = a place to vent maybe, but c'mon, that's
about it.

Same in Louisville, they want everyone to rush out to work, then after
you have been on minutes for 15 minutes a TM shows up to give you a
ride as soon as 20 minutes is up. Morale is as low as it could be.

Last night I came in 5 minutes before start time.  The kool-aid drinking
train master told me to be on my engine at start time or I would be
considered late.

I Came in for my yard job and 3 minutes after my start time the
trainmaster was already hounding me to get in a csx vehicle so he could
 drive us to our yard power. This was before I could go over my work
with the yardmaster and ask any questions about the work.also no time
to go over our release forms and bulletins. i understand that I rarely
leave the yard to need the bulletins , but I still go over them.on top
of that I still haven't had a chance to give the work over to my
engineer and go over it with him on how and what we're are doing . I
understand they don't want us bullshitting in the bullroom with others
but these fucking managers are gona get someone hurt or killed .shit
takes time when you start your shift.  Then when there's a derailment
they will sure to blame the crew and not wanna hear how rushing us had
nothing to do with it.

I want Ward back.... Never thought I would say that. 
What do we do now to save our railroad before it's too late? Any
suggestions? What would happen if a lot of us all of a sudden started
selling our stock would that do anything? Someone thats smart should
come up with a good plan for us to follow before csx is completely
derailed.

i have read over the many comments and have my 2 cents to add.i have
never worked for the railroads.a new applicant orientation in 1976 at
southern railroad,now ns changed my mind then and i found other
employment.the idea of so much time on the rails and yard and not at
home would not have worked out nor living by the phone like sr wanted
like they were god would have not worked out.
  some of the bs you guys put up with from your superiors is just
that.the constant call ins,short on sleep,can't plan anything on a
family level,constant "rule" changes,job injuries,etc.ask for a day
off with reasonable notice--your then noted as being lower than snake
shit.too many bs rules and your union helping you?-tough shit.they only
want your monthly dues. y'all are rode hard and left out to dry.you
don't know whether to shit or go blind so to speak.
  in reading the comments,i thought i had some hard bosses but compared
to csx management and supervision, these people look like jesus christ.i
am retired on disability at age 62 and don't live in the past but i do
look back at my work for 40yrs and compared to the railroad it wasn't
so bad after all.
  y'all bust your butts to keep the trains moving.folks like me
appreciate your efforts,your pr by waving to folks going thru a
crossing.y'all would do better if csx would show appreciation for its
employees and treat all with respect and dignity and reasonable time
off for family obligations, funerals and birth of your kids.again as
john q public, i appreciate your efforts.my2cents in the pot.i read
your posts everyday and wish y'all the best.

Our union steward has been laid off for over a month.  Meanwhile  there
has been an ID pool lost and two of our pools have been combined.  
Response by said union steward  "O they can do that."  I've never
heard that one before.  I guess the carrier was just being nice to let
us have different pools.  Well  not NOW thank you.  


Whoever doesn't take two minutes to vote on their proxy is a damn
idiot.  Even if it makes no difference at least you cast your thoughts.
  

There is a slim chance HH "Mantle Ridge" money could be voted down.
              So FUCK Those GUYS  you think they care about us

“Because track and yard capacity is finite, adding more equipment
creates congestion and slows down the system. While it may sound
counterintuitive, reducing fleet size actually enables a railroad to
move more volume. By running fewer and heavier trains, faster and on
schedule, assets can be utilized far more productively and can yield
significant savings,” EHH
