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...

Mr. Ed.

  Gotta agree with Conductor 1-10, your posts were entertaining for a
few days, but it is getting old and it has ran it's course. If you
have something relevant to this site "CSX SUCKS' then by all means
post away. Otherwise your not being funny man, your wasting your time
posting crap that nobody reads or finds informative.

Would you stop with the Mr Ed bit. It's not funny. Obviously you're
from the millennial generation because every one of them are just like
you. You think you have a good joke and then you repeat it for 3 years.
No creativity or mind of your own because you spent your life playing
video games. Same memes over and over again, same dumbass made up
internet words over and over again. Nobody thinks it's funny.

Heard 25 transportation jobs are gone in Willard  now waiting to see
what they do with carmen.  Growing up railroad never thought I'd see
this happen to Willard   

Anyone heard how many cuts to carmen with over 20 years you would think
I wouldn't have to worry

Cumberland is slowly but surely crashing and burning. Craftspeople are
assigned seats for turnover. Not allowed to enter lunch room until
start of shift. Stafford is a retard. Arigo is an adulterer who brags
at local bars about furloughing people. Fucking losers.

You got it all wrong about North Baltimore, have any of you been there
to see the place?

Double leads on both ends almost a mile long on west end, mile half on
east...


Take out the cranes and you have a perfectly flat , super flat
switching yard taylor made to pump out freight.  They will be closing
all manifest freight out of Willard, New Castle, Garrett, Toledo and
switch it there. And since its an intermodal property, all work will
be done by private contractors in the yard.


Kick em

It really is closing. Think about it this way, csx intermodal has
agreements to use private contractors, utility men that aren't csx,
Carmen that aren't csx, it's all private contractors that were agreed
upon when north Baltimore opened. If the same work is done in Willard,
which is csx transportation, not csx intermodal, by csx guys that are
already there, and are going to be without work soon anyways, then they
save alot of money. Repurpose Willard, you're utilizing assets. Sell
north Baltimore, it's too small for our needs anyways, and you make a
profit to cover the changes

North Baltimore closing. Willard hump shutting down Friday. Going to
flat switch only 300 cars a day. Intermodal freight will block swap at
willard. new castle getting 30 million in improvements so freight can
be switched from both ends of the yard. All happening very soon. New
castle supposed to get yardmasters back and 6 around the clock, 3 man
yard jobs when work is done. Avon and new castle going to handle all of
Willard's work.

I told the old man it will be called "Mr.Ed Camps" there was a
misprint in the new magazine. Please disregard the previous printing. 

The new upcoming talent didn't have to be brainwashed to suck the old
man off.   They were more than willing to get and stay on their knees
the entire Mr.Ed Camp.   While one was be spanked he kept asking may he
have another.  

Be watching for me coming to a barn near you.  I'm touring the system
in December will be handing out oats,carrots and all kind of special
treats to the old man's good little boys and girls.

Has everyone got there csx magazine. This magazine would make Joseph
Goebbels smile from his nazi grave. My favorite part of the magazine is
the 2 pictures of hunter harrison. The one picture gotta be from at
least 5 years ago while he was at the CP and then there was the current
picture of him sitting in a chair at his first "Hunter Camp" with
about 30 kool-aid drinking managers behind him.this guy looks like he
is on his death bed. Funny how he has to cut costs or as he likes to
say "control costs" across the system with job cuts and furloughs,
but how much did he spend on this magazine? Paying people to interview
the kool-aid drinkers, take pictures, printing and  the postage alone
probably cost thousands. That on top of remodeling his office in
Jacksonville that's he's never at.... millions of dollars wasted for
his pet projects, but call me a brake man when I have 150 cars to
switch with 98 cuts is out of the question.

The old man has lost his mind.  He was talking to the goose today. 
Trying to get some information about their flight pattern or something.
 He thinks he can model his rr after it.

Old Man on horse says to little conductor on bike, "Did Santa get you
that?" 
"Yes," replies the little conductor. 
"Well tell him to put a reflector light on it next year!" and charges
him. 
The little conductor looks up at the old man and says, "Nice horse
you've got there, did Santa bring you that?" 
The Old Man coughs and grasp for air and replies, "He sure did!" 
"Well," says the little conductor, "Next year tell Santa that the
dick goes under the horse, not on top of it

Jeez Oh Pete, 
gettin' old can be a bummer but after reading posts on this site -
whew, glad as heck to be outta there.  RRs never seemed to be very
employee friendly (actually, not many companies are) & it must be even
worse now.

Well Patrick,
best guess is the rail companies are gonna wait until all the other
avenues are exhausted so they then can rely on favorable (to them)   
PEB recommendations.

Yes, Willard is next. Heard it on a trainmasters conference call. There
aren't going to be any originating trains anymore and Willard will
only be used for interchange with other railroads, and for block swap.
All yard jobs and all but one yardmaster are supposed to be gone. All
but 2 trainmasters. It's not going to be good for new castle and
Willard.

Hey guys:

Just wondering with all the billshit the
asshole carriers are pulling on you for a
new national contracts, when do you with the possibilities of going on
strike?

Looks like the assholes your working for
are not going to give in and after the PEB exhaust your bargaining??
When do you suspect it will go down?
