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...

I left CSX 3 months after HH took over and couldn't be happier, after
16 years of service it was time to go and I couldn't be happier. I
found a manufacturing job starting at 22.50/hr with great benefits,
good union, regular schedule, weekends off, 30 minute lunch break with
2 15 minute breaks, working inside out of the rain and cold and heat.
For anyone thinking of leaving make sure you check your 401k at 
https://participant.empower-retirement.com/participant/#/login 
with just over 16 years in I had a substantial amount of money that I
was able to pay off all my debt with including my house! They do tax it
quite a bit but hey I was paying interest on my house, credit cards and
vehicles that I will no longer pay so it's an even trade. You can't
cash out your 401k unless you quit believe me I tried but they only
offered a loan. Before anyone says I'm stupid for using my retirement
just know that now I am 100% debt free with everything I own paid off I
was paying 1200/mo for house, 220/mo for credit cards, 450/month on my
truck and 480/mo on wife's car. That totals $2,350.00/mo freed up that
I can afford to put in at my new job that by the way matches 100% of the
first 10% that I put in and 50% of the next 10% that I put in. So
basically I put in 20% of my check and they put in 15% so 35% of my
check goes in 401k. I am putting $1260.00 a month in my 401k now so in
10 years I will be right back up to $150,000 not including market
performance.
Check your 401k people you will be surprised!

There are plenty of people leaving, and there are people who have had
their jobs cut that have no intention of coming back. We sacrifice
quality of life for a good income and security of our jobs and
benefits. Alot of that is either gone or alot less promising than it
was before this old bastard got here. My seniority was getting good and
meant alot just last year, now I'm on the bottom and worse than i was
my first year! I got a great job myself. It's a pay cut to start, but
within a year, I'll be equal to or greater than where I am except
I'll sleep at home every day, I'll know when I work and know when
I'm off. I'll be able to control when I sleep, what I eat, whether or
not I can exercise, I'll be able to keep my grass mowed, I won't have
to carry 70 lbs of bags everywhere.... And you know, a year ago, I
would've said I plan on retiring on the railroad with no intention of
ever doing anything else. I would've taken my lumps, taken another
furlough if necessary, you know, but with all the extra bullshit and
changes, all the extra stress, the insecurity that is moving in, I
don't have the slightest bit of hesitation to leave. I'm ready. Next
week brothers. I love(d) the job and the people I worked with, but
it's just another chapter that I'm glad to turn the page of.

Cho cho


You're correct that most of us won't be leaving but It has very
little to do with lack of skill and education.

My subdivision the men on the trains have more education and training
than our supervisors.  There are many vets, college grads and
tradesman. 


I'm all three.

No matter how bad it gets, and it will get worse, most of us are stuck
at CSX because we are too dumb to go find anything that pays 17+ an
hour. There are plenty of jobs that work Mon-Fri set schedule no on
call that pay decent, actually match 401k, have profit sharing, good
unions, etc but the majority of us have no other skill set to move on
to something else. So no matter how bad it gets CSX will not have to
hire anyone for a long time because there is very little chance of
anyone quitting.

Eugene doesn't care about intermodal.   He's ran off plenty of
buisness.    He closed Caskey Yard and put a stop to ID runs.   He
doesn't give two shits about 10 years down the road only the now.  He
knows he won't be here anyway.

Willard is now switching trailer trains, the eastbound class yard is
being shut down entirely, rumored to get sold to wheeling. North
Baltimore closing, for real, selling cranes, or maybe moving them to
South Carolina. New castle getting 30-40 million in upgrades to handle
more freight. Good luck.
