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...

what we need to do is pass the word around about which doctors will give
FMLA forms the concern that is needed. I know for a fact that the FMLA
folks that CSX hires (near Madison, Wi.)call the doctors office and
explain that they need the FMLA reduced to help "the worker and his
family" get back to work quickly so they will not go penniless. Some
doctors fall for this. Other doctors know the real story so 1 employee
is always in trouble and his co worker is ALWAYS on FMLA. Years ago my
union rep knew which doctor to suggest. We had a co worker with
legitimate and severe medical problems who needed disability. His
regular doctor was able to patch him up so he worked the extra 9?
months until full retirement, and died 3? months later. The Doc thought
he was doing him a kindness.

I've been visiting this site for a long long time. I always use to
enjoy NoMo's annual Brown Banana Award for the biggest POS CSX
managers on the system.  Starting now, you can make your nominations
for who you think is the lowest of all lows, this is based on
Chickenshit failures, having the backbone of a Jellyfish, Habitual
Liar, Arrogant, Morally Bankrupt, etc...  after all nominations are
reviewed by other posters a decision will be mad as to who is deserving
of being the Biggest CSX lowlife on the system.  I'll start off by
making my nomination, this one is gonna be hard to beat boys and girls,
 Drum rolls please....Trainmaster Berry.

IN ACTUAL THEORY, HAVING ALL EMPLOYEES WORK ALL JOBS WOULD BE BETTER,
SINCE THEY SHOULDN'T CALL YOU 99 OUT IF THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER
EMPLOYEES HIGHER ON THE LIST OF ALL EMPLOYEES. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE ADA.
REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION? WHAT IS REASONABLE FOR A YARDMASTER WITH A
SORE ARM? THE NORMAL STORY WOULD BE TO PROVIDE HIM WITH AN
ASSISTANT.URGENT NEED FOR A CONDUCTOR ON Q123? CALL THE YARDMASTER.
DOES HE HAVE BACK TROUBLE THAT LETS HIM DO THE YARDMASTERS JOB BUT NOT
CARRY A KNUCKLE? REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION. CALL A TRACKMAN OR
TRAINMASTER TO ASSIST, HE CAN DO HIS WORK LATER. WHAT IF BRIAN EDWARDS
IS THE TM, CAN HE CHANGE A KNUCKLE? DOES THAT LEAD TO A FELA CLAIM?
LOTS OF INTERESTING SCENARIOS.  AGAIN, I'LL BET A LOT OF JAX FOLKS ARE
FRANTICALLY GETTING TUITION ASSISTANCE, JUST LIKE AT CON RAIL PHILLY
WHEN THEY SAW THE END. ARE YOU MAKING PLANS?

Understand the frustration. Having to see a doctor, dentist, need tests
run, etc., etc., is not the most pleasant thing to do anyway. This
lousy outfit.  Their entire work force is going to have file for FMLA -
just to be able to get medical attention if\when needed.

Conductor 30+:
               you are right. managers promoted from the ranks are
often the worst class of employee. Realizing that they aren't good
railroaders and incapable of performing work in the civilian sector or
effectively running a part time real life job, they devote themselves
to cracking down or harassing normal employees in the fond hope this
will earn them merit with higher managers. Many managers go back to
craft to be decent human beings......but the worst stay on.

In re clerks in Jax I wonder if CMC managers will stay until the system
is fully automated. I read about a start up that created an automated
human sounding interactive system that would rather realistically,
using AI, replace a call center in Bangalore or Cebu City and interact
with customers. That would be great at CSX as the people calling in are
not customers, but rather mere employees, and CSX for years have called
people on rest, for jobs not qualified for, and territory they can't
work. Only a certain number of questions are likely to exist: "I'm
not qualified" I am on FMLA. I am not qualified on that territory, I
marked off red block, etc. A better question is how do the former
Hunter RR'S handle it, and what protections exist in Canadian law that
changes things? Especially as Jax may not exist for too much longer,
shedding employees as soon as possible could be very economical. I
would also look at the TCU, and see how aggressive they are in
defending any agreement for clerks.

since HH took over no one has been let go from CMC from management.
Why?
  Clerks though are now being furloughed due to the previous cuts made
under Ward.  With these cuts and the CAPS policies clerks will be no
more. 
 any ideas on how  HH handles union members who have had "protected
status" under the CBA?  
CMC Clerks or any clerk with minimal seniority who are not protected
are going to be let go with no chance of returning

### FMLA handling is being changed also where anyone new to FMLA will
have to reapply every 90 days instead of yearly

yes, it seems true that Dave Harris, Avon terminal superintendent, was
re-accommodated off the property after a personal conversation with
Hunter Harrison explaining that on time departure was NOT job #1 in his
(Dave's) opinion.After a full and frank exchange of views this resulted
in a career alingment to pursue other opportunities.

To who ever thinks Harrison will take over UP next, I just don't think
it will happen. He will struggle to last long enough to turn CSX into
his vision of a RR, good or bad. As he progresses UP and BNSF will be
taking charge of the rest of the RR system wide reorganization, not
waiting for him to struggle through his final years. My guess is that
he wants to put his firm imprint on CSX before he ends up in Florida,
watching his horses and being watched by 24 hour staff and medical
support. If he was 20 years younger and in excellent health, it might
be a different scenario.

Harrison's next move will be with his hedge fund team and make a 
HOSTILE takeover of the Union Pacific. His proven-ed operating metrics
(revenue earned per employee) is twice the amount earned by UP for each
employee. If and when an announcement is made, Lance Fritz (CEO),
Cameron Scott (XO)and Rod Doerr (VP of Safety and Slowing Down Trains),
will be immediately fired [like Ward]. 

               AND THEN THE STOCK WILL DOUBLE!

So called part time employees were often the best. They had to plan and
be both efficient and determined to get everything done. The RR only
guys just didn't have the determination to do all that work. HOWEVER,
recent managers set it up so nobody could get anything done and the
company was / is in a state of mass confusion. And they assume telling
everybody "stand by, we don't have our plans thought out" works well
because employees aren't supposed to do anything else, just stand
around.
