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...

Any truth to the rumor that the Lima railyard will no longer be owned by
csx after December 1 2017 ? 
Are they really closing that yard and selling to Genesse & Wyoming ?

The only chance you have to fight this CEO is help from the government.
Pushing for the government to issue a cease and desist to the CEO for
interfering with interstate commerce and numerous contract violations
for both the union and shippers is a great option. Someone needs to tie
that meddling fools hands before he destroys anymore lives. The shippers
coalition is a union alliance must. Maybe together they can stop him.
Others have not banded together and the result was a mess. Do not wait.
Push hard and fast to remove him. He is pushing faster and harder now
that this is his third go around at this. Hunter Harrison is relying on
employees being afraid to comply with the rules in order to move
freight. He is relying on each employee being afraid to stand up and
say something because there will be reprucusions. Essentially silincing
the work force while he has his way. Do not be afraid, under different
circumstances this is considered rape. Legal professionals, not
everyday ďI think I am a lawyer but I donít have a degreeĒ individuals
need to be avoided. This belongs is true professional legal hands.
Every occurrence individually isnít enough, but all combined there is a
case.

Thanks to President Trump, and his illegal immigration policy, the
railroad is having a hard time undermining American citizens, while
trying to recruit cheap labor. This is the first time, in many, many
contracts, that the last contract has remain intact, and with
additional benefits.

The labor pool is thinner and thinner, thanks to Mr. Trump!

And all that we can hope for now, is that, the swamp continues to be
drain, and rid the system of corrupt Democrats, who will sell out the
country for cheap labor, for votes!
 
Make America Great Again!

Everyone!  

Even though that horrible CEO has taken over and disrupted so many
lives let's not forget that it's Thanksgiving. We all have something
to be thankful for. If not out jobs then the love of family,friends,a
home,a loyal pet or our health. Let's all stop for just a few minutes
and thank someone for something good they have brought to our lives. Be
positive even if things seems hopeless. God works in mysterious ways.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

"Negative morale" is not up for negotiation.
It's no secret that HH doesn't give a shit about you or me. Put in
your hours and collect a paycheck.
As far as the contract is concerned, I believe we will end up better
off ratifying it than if we leave it up to the government. Your ideal
contract isn't one of our options as far as I can tell.

VOTE YES

I don't give 2 shits or feel sorry about a dispatcher that gets a
moving truck and company buys their house through appendix 2. I read
the homeless article. Lots of facts left out of it. Like selling a
house before you get a definite move date. What did the ATDA do for the
Ex Huntington dispatchers that were cut off?  ATDA got the NS
dispatchers on the Central division that got closed a 170,000 dollars
to cut ties with the company or 6 years of New York Dock. 
Unbelievable!!! There's Union for ya!!!

I haven't seen morale this low in my whole career. Everybody, including
managers, hate coming to work. It's pretty sad because CSX could be a
great company with happy employees. It's mind blowing that one man can
change a fortune 300 company....

I hate it for all the men and women who have loss their jobs or who have
suffered hardships under this minister of PSRR.    He has truly messed
over the train dispatchers.    The rumor is he is wearing adult diapers
now alongside his Vader mask.  How can a man get a million dollar
contract when he can't even purchase life insurance.  


Kellogg's is getting bent over now with about 500 of their employees
and another 1000+ spin off jobs.   We can't strike because of damage
to commerce but this lunatic can get away with his bullshit.

You guys look pathetic pleading for people to "vote no" on here. You
act like you're honestly going to get a better deal with today's
economy and business ethics. Probably the same people saying no that
want the hourly wage. So many people in this company who either don't
know cause they've only ever worked here, or forgot what its like in
other professions. You could be breaking your back for 70 hours a week
in a steel mill for an OK paycheck, working for $20 bucks an hour as a
L.E.O. risking your life everyday, or you can keep getting fatter
sitting in the seat and collect your already above average paycheck
thinking you deserve more. This contract, while important, should be
the last of your worries. How about all your union brothers losing jobs
throughout the system as they keep cutting terminals and jobs? Wheres
the union comradery there?

Well, i have been swayed i will vote no,even if it means trumps lackys
give us something worse. I think no matter what, we get the contract
and HH side letters will soon follow, im just gonna sit back and wacth
the horror show unfold, to all my brothers and sisters be proud of what
you do but always remember this job doesnt define us we worked hard to
get here and i hope we fight like hell to take it back, never give up
never settle for less and please never ever become one of the "we r
just lucky to have a job" pepole. HH is putting his hand in our
pockets, taking our time from our family's and treating us like
replaceable workers, we are highly trained professionals that have many
skills and an unmatched ability to adapt to changing work conditions,
and can change our plans on the fly to complete our tasks, stand firm
stand together dont be the weak link

To friend and famiy 10 to 20, Donald Trump is no republican.  Neither is
much of the so called republican leadership.  Fear them not.  What did
you say when we got lousy contracts under total democrat control?  They
have all wrapped you around their little finger.  Much of America is
entirely too gullible for their own good.  Good luck with your way of
thinking.  BTW, "WEALTHY FAVORED TAX PLAN"?  50% of Americans pay no
federal income tax now.  How do you give them a tax break? More EBT for
the masses?  Make sure when you speak against the tax plan, you use
words like corporate welfare.  The really stupid that walk amongst us,
(you know who you are. 👽) like it when you spout off all the
socialist talking points.

To Locomotive Engineer with less than 1 year of service; 
Itís imperative that you and everyone else read this contract proposal
in its entirety. The $220 a month is only agreed upon until the end of
2019. At that point it can and probably will increase drastically .
Also keep in mind that your deductibles for individual and family are
increasing to $350/$700. Thatís quite the hike. As per work rule
changes, the national agreement is just a guideline in my opinion. The
individual carrier can go back and make amendments as they see fit. Iíd
rather work without a contract for the next 8 years than keep giving up
more and more of our hard earned benefits. If CSX can afford to pay one
man $300 million for 4 years, they can afford to leave our health
insurance alone and give us 3% cost of living raises annually. We have
the right to self-help (strike) after the PEB meetings conclude. Letís
see how it plays out.

i agree.  in this political climate with the republicans in power and
getting ready to ram a wealthy favored tax plan through it is very hard
to imagine a better deal with a presidential emergency board. elections
matter. those razor thin margins in wisconsin, pennsylvania, michigan
and the senate seats that were lost narrowly are coming home to roost.
have to hope for a change in 2018 midterms.

Have been reading all posts starting since October 2017. Have also been
watching the changes going on at CSX on the local front, and certainly
don't like what's going on as those changes will...and
are...effecting family and friends and their livelihoods. Since this
page is the first one I've come across in my search for answers as to
WTH is going on, as well as what some terms are that keep coming up in
conversations, I keep wondering why it is that no one has started a FB
page about all this. If Hunter keeps belittling the workers, keeps
blaming the engineers and conductors for the delays in departures and
arrivals as well as for the mess that is now CSX, WHY aren't you guys
speaking out and letting everyone know it isn't you but his backwards
plans?? 

And as to the suggested contract...if it were up to me, I'd vote no
because ANYONE who has to use any medical services regularly is going
to be screwed with this contract. Proposed prescription costs are
outrageous compared to what you guys have now especially for anyone who
has to take medications (god forbid they are only name brand ones!!) on
a regular basis, Teledoc and related services are NOT reliable
companies...do the homework and check them out for customer reviews,
not employee reviews.

CSX employees need to start fighting back before you all lose your
company...and your jobs.
