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...

people discussing OLI aren't totally wrong. Although many OLI
VOLUNTEERS tried to help, CSX pulled much support from OLI because the
goal, from the company view, was to make sure that ALL grade crossing
collisions were 100% the fault of the driver and ZERO % the fault of
the RR. Making sure every judge, attorney, police officer, etc.
swallowed that line was a big help. Air bags? they used to call them
cowcatchers. Fault? look at Palsgraf vs LIRR or Yazoo&Mississippi vs.
(plaintiff), both notable tort cases way back when. . Once people
viewed railroads as rich, arrogant and needing punishment the carriers
took a pounding. It took years for that image to die, to be replaced
with the penniless, bankrupt RR image. NOW we seem to be going back to
the original view.People DO ask why our air brakes are 1870 style. Many
questions ARE legitimate.

Dont worry.  If dispatchers continue to deny Roadway and Bridge teams
track time to do necessary maintenance, this precision railroading plan
will come to a halt in a big pile of iron, fire, and smoke......all for
the low, low, CEO price of 300 million dollars!!

Norfolk Southern and their stock price are doing just fine with a CEO
making a whole lot less...and their dispatchers give MOW track time to
keep up maintenance with 4 and 5 day crews. Hmmm!

Jermaine.....Your “Precision Scheduled Railroading” (PSR) will have
major problems if the Train & Engine employees ever comply 100% with
your lawyer written operating rules.
You’ll need to change many of them or have the Trainmasters turn their
heads.

Subject: FROM JERMAINE SWAFFORD: Structural Changes

Dear Railroaders,

Today I am announcing changes to support CSX's transformation to
Precision Scheduled Railroading. Effectively delivering on Precision
Scheduled Railroading requires us to have a disciplined and consistent
approach to our railroad design and our operational guidelines and
policies. To that end, we are implementing changes to our team
structure that establish greater clarity and accountability for
executing on these responsibilities. These changes are effective
immediately.

Assistant Vice President Jamie Boychuk and the Service Design team will
lead all of our railroad design initiatives. Their guidance is critical
to help us achieve greater precision in our train schedules, which will
drive improved service, reliability and asset utilization. All functions
are required to adhere to their direction on how we develop our service
design plans and operate our trains to best serve our customers.

In addition, all dispatching offices will now report to Bob Frulla,
senior vice president of Network Operations. This change will deliver
improved communication across our regions, better alignment with our
guidelines and policies, and more efficient execution of our service
plans. With the addition of these new responsibilities, Bob will be
leading the consolidation of the dispatching offices.

I'm confident that these changes will help expedite our progress
toward achieving Precision Scheduled Railroading and look forward to
continued improvements that establish CSX as a highly efficient
railroad.

About 30 car maintenance/repair personal have been layed off in
Nashville. The whole railroad is clogged up because of it. What kind of
monkey's would do that just to prove a point?  Stock is down. Let's
keep it that way.

Guaranteed at least 10 hrs. undisturbed rest after marking off duty 
 = Y \N ?
Doubtful if the RRs will ever care if an employee has a family and/or
responsibilities at home.

Never thought I would see so many management Diversity Hires fired for
poor job performance. Under Ward, these folks were untouchable. Man,
this EHH guy isn't messing around, just cleaned house at Cincy. This
would never happen under Ward and Sanborn. EHH you are my hero.

sure, you have veterans, E-5's, even O-3's, one E-9 that I know of,
along with people with real degree's from real colleges. BUT, they are
all threats to every level of management. If, as example, you have
extensive haz mat training and experience (i.e. military and now RR
background) your duty will be to speak only when spoken to, and Report
To Proper Authority as ordered, while every often inexperienced manager
will be Awaiting Further Instructions from Higher Authority, milling
around with other managers, hoping nothing incredible will happen
before Uncle Billy gets back from vacation and has arrived to ask HIS
superior and cousin from West Virginia how to fuzz the incident out
until it is forgotten. There is A LOT on the RR that could be done by
an E-5 over 4 that instead is kicked up to a division superintendent
who flunked his enlistment exam and became a RR manager instead. They
had to hire EHH to replace the E-5, because they can't dare hire an
E-5 to do it. Me, I always said give Bill Gates a train set for free,
and if he was interested he could run CSX as a hobby. So could Jeff
Bezos or Elon Musk. THEN the stock would really go up!

We have Veterans, college grads, and tradesman within the T&E.  Some are
all three.   I know on my subdivision T&E have more education than those
baby sitting us.   It's not because we are "too dumb" most like their
job, the people they work with, lifestyle they can provide for their
families and the overall benefits.      HH is on borrowed time.  This
to will pass.

Even though it gets worse and worse out here each week most of us are
pretty much stuck in it because we are too dumb to go get another
decent job that actually requires skill. You ain't gotta be smart to
drive a truck and that's starting to sound pretty good about now.

TO LANDSER:
            Kill the up and comers? What up and comers? If you are a
manager or potential manager you need to be both non-threatening (often
slow witted) and be related to the in group. Young, smart, ambitious are
NOT welcomed in management here or most railroads. The smart, innovative
hot shot with a real MBA will soon be gone, unless he is an undercover
railfan, in which case he will stay in the ranks and propose NOTHING,
just watching trains and collecting money and seniority. Example: EHH
is planning massive pools where everybody is qualified everywhere. For
many folks in the very recent past, that would mean constant calls all
night to explain you weren't qualified, on rest, etc. For EHH to do
this means he is NOT using any current management. The fact stock has
shot up means investors believe he is the very rare manager that can
and will do something other than stumble and snooze. He is doing it in
a very harsh manner, of course, but the others? can't do it at all. 88
mil.bonus for a dying man? That means he is very rare. I'm sure many
people can remember improvements / changes that were botched,
retracted, left in a steaming pile on the road. EHH is selling "get er
done", for better or worse.

TO JINKEM:
             You don't lose a 401k if you are fired or quit. You may
keep the 401k or transfer it (within time limits) to ANOTHER 401k
account WITHOUT IT BEING IN YOUR POCKET FOR EVEN A FEW MINUTES. NOW, if
your employer pays some of the expenses or matching money for you, a now
ex employee, that part will stop.  Lots of brokers will be eager to take
your 401k money and put it in another account.
