CSX-Sucks!

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...

crews!!  READ THE NOTICE effective on the 9th

No attendance policy for returning to work is to vague and does not
explain what a significant illness is considered. According to policy
you only have to be hospitalized just one day and you cant come back to
work until you submit md-3 form and get approval from the csx medical
department, Jesus! that could take weeks. spend one day in the hospital
and get released that night and they want an MD-3 form? What the hell.
what if your just in for a day because you have bad cramps and they
want to keep you for test. Once they admit you then you have
technically been hospitalized. This is just pure retaliation for the
FMAL scandal going on right now. Looks like we better start getting up
our unions asses to get this clarified or get together as a class group
and go see the lawyers who handle this kind of harassment and treatment
for having a single day SIGNIFICANT ILLNESS.

FMLA RETALIATION

OK CREWS! Bet you didn't read the latest notice that is effective on
the 9th of April. Well you better read it. CSX is getting down to the
nitty gritty and get even with those who are suing csx. There is no
doubt that this notice was created because of the FMAL scandal.

EMPLOYEES WHO ARE RETURNING TO WORK FOLLOWING TREATMENT FOR A
SIGNIFICANT ILLNESS OR INJURY REQUIRING HOSPITALIZATION OR SURGICAL
INTERVENTION MUST SUBMIT AN MD-3 COMPLETED....BLAH BLAH BLAH AND BE
CLEARED BY THE CSX MEDICAL DEPARTMENT TO RETURN TO WORK. iNCLUDES ALL
ABSENCES REQUIRING HOSPITILIZATION OR SURGERY AND IS NOT....HERE IS THE
KICKER.......DEPENDENT ON HOW MANY DAYS THE EMPLOYEE IS OFF WORK. WITH
IT WORDED THIS WAY, ONE SINGLE DAY COULD PUT YOU UNDER THE ENFORCEMENT
OF THIS NEW POLICY.
TALKED TO LOCAL CHAIRMAN THIS MORNING AND HE DIDNT KNOW A THING ABOUT
IT BECAUSE HE DOESNT READ NOTICES. TOLD HIM TO GET OFF HIS ASS AND READ
IT AND GET WITH THE UNIONS ON GETTING THIS CLARIFIED.
WHAT IS SIGNIFICANT? WHAT LEVEL OR DEGEREE OF ILLNESS DOES THIS
ENVOLVE.
SAY YOU DEADHEAD HOME FROM TRAIN AND STOP AT TACO BELL TO EAT. AT
MIDNIGHT YOU WAKE UP DEATHLY SICK AS A DOG AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL . SAY
ITS MIDNIGHT. YOU FIND OUT AT THE EMERGENCY ROOM YOU MIGHT HAVE FOOD
POISIONING BUT THEY DONT KNOW FOR SURE AND WANT TO ADMIT YOU AND RUN
SOME TEST. YOU MARK OFF SICK. THEY FIND OUT THATS WHAT IS WAS AND
RELEASE YOU IN THE AFTERNOON. YOU WERE NOW HOSPITILIZED . NOW YOU CANT
COME BACK TO WORK IF YOU DO NOT SUBMIT THIS FORM AND GET CLEARED BY THE
CSX MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. 
SO WHAT DO YOU DO? YOU DONT TELL THEM AND YOU EAT THE POINTS. YOU KEEP
YOUR MOUTH SHUT BECASUE IT MAY TAKE A WEEK FOR THE CSX MEDICAL
DEPARTMENT TO CLEAR YOU. WE ALL KNOW HOW THE RED TAPE IS WITH THIS
COMPANY.
TALK TO YOUR LC'S IMMEDIATELY. DEMAND THEY GET THIS CLARIFIED. IF THE
COMPANY FINDS OUT YOU WERE HOSPITILIZED AND YOU DIDNT FOLLOW THE
INSTRUCTIONS OF THIS NEW POLICY IT STATES YOU WILL BE CHARGED. 
ITS GETTING DEEP AND MOST LIKELY WILL GET WORSE AS TIME GOES ON.

I love when you're having problems and the TM shows up.   Now you have
a 3rd person just in the way slowing progress up.   In 25 years I can
only recall twice a TM helped in any way.  And all they did was give
the conductor a ride to the head end.   All TMs need to be fired.  We
don't need them.

places I've ever worked... And I've worked some shitty jobs.even
counting "jobs" I had to do in jail when I was younger! They act like
we are crack whores just because they're paying us..which taking in to
consideration  the hours work if you have any kind of skills really is
not above-average at all. I'm gone. Good luck to you guys that gotta

Here are some of the reasons that "CSX Sucks". It starts with the
culture.  Management is #1.  They don't have the skills and talent
period.  I have never been a part of an organization this lazy and
stupid. About 90% of the decisions made are wrong.  Neopotism is
rampant and so is hiring management due to minority and military status
instead of the most qualified.  Dispatching and yardmastering is
terrible quite often.  Once again hiring the wrong people.  The union
is also the problem. The "clique" or select few make decisions on
behalf of all which usually involves greed instead of quality of life. 
Rest and other aspects could be better managed.  Favoritism and bribery
happen a lot causing animosity.  Same people deadheading and flipping
home.  The list goes on.....have a good day.

Hey there no name engineer for 20-30 years CSX does suck that's why it
has a website dedicated to letting people know how it sucks and of
course there are people that complain who in the hell can put up with
their s*** that they do to you I've never worked at a job and been
treated like they treat you there just because they pay us well
doesn't mean they can treat us like animals and I did something about
it but guys that have been there for 20-30 years like you ain't got
enough balls to do anything about it

Another problem with this site is about 10 to 15 people write about 90%
of the posts. They are the ones who come up with the crafty names (so
they think) or use cindy Sanborn, Michael Ward or Hunter harrison or
any other managers names. Do you think anyone other then yourselves
thinks it funny. These are the same guys that comes to work and bitches
and complains about there job and csx all day long to anyone who will
listen. Every terminal has one or two of them. its always about how
they are getting mistreatd. Hate to tell you everyone gets mistreated
even the trainmasters, I have heard how upper management talks to them
over conference calls and it's not pleasant. Then the complainers then
go home to there double wide and sits down and comes on this site to
bitch about something. Of course they offer no solutions or will not
step up to do something.YOU ALL KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND  YA I KNOW THE
TRUTH HURTS, BUT YOU NEEDED TO HEAR THIS

This is the reason i dont come on this site much anymore. Just a bunch
of pussys who do nothing but complain about everything, but offers no
solutions.how many times do we need to hear how incompetent a
trainmaster is! Another good one is the union sucks, if theunion sucks,
why dont you run to be a local chairmen and see if you can do better.
Lets see....  mantle ridge is destroying csx, guess what they own alot
of csx stock so i guess the can if they choose to. the mean trainmaster
is doing O TESTS, its part of there job.STOP FUCKING CRYING ABOUT
EVERYTHING IF YOUR NOT WILLING TO STAND UP AND DO WHATS RIGHT. YOU JUST
WANT THE NEXT PERSON TO DO IT FOR YOU CAUSE EITHER YOUR SCARED,LAZY OR
AFRAID YOU WILL GET FIRED.

Talking about the managers being vital,we had 16 engines in the shop in
Cumberland today with 5 figures to make for 1st shift. We had 1 band 6
two band 5 and 2 band 4 and 1 700 supervisor to check on production of
about 30 men. Most of the time they spend walking around with there
hands in pockets drinking coffee or upstairs watching video tape to
catch someone doing something wrong or unproductive!  That's at least
750,000 dollars in salaries! Sad but true.

If you've worked at csx for any amount of time you should know who she
is, corporate. She's in charge of fmla, attendance caps. Just heard
rumor that when all those law suits started they let her go...
