CSX-Sucks!

Denied Claims

Claim Invalid??

    Railroaders work, and expect to be paid. It's a simple idea. Less work means less pay. Likewise, more work should mean more pay, but that's not the way things work on the CSX. According to union contracts, there are situations that warrant additional pay, for additional work, but more often than not, these claims are not honored by the CSX.

Help

let me explain something to you that Im assuming you don't understand
or have not thought of. First off there are numerous lazy railroaders
out there who DO NOT READ THEIR NOTICES!  You had one recently that
made it very clear you were to report all wait times and deadheads no
matter how you got from point A to point B. It stated very clearly you
were to report all wait times and it did not say only if you outlawed.
The FRA has just about had enough of the company not reporting waiting
times for crews left on trains and how they are getting off the trains
and to the terminal to mark off. Limbo time is not being reported right
and they are well aware of the manipulation of crews tours of duty. The
notice has thrown the responsibility into the crews laps and even
states if you do not report these times and types of transportation you
can be charged with two different rules violations.  READ THAT NOTICE!

Second, I stood right next to a conductor who was on the phone with CMC
arguing that they were not given the proper deadhead pay for a trip out
of their away from home terminal to their home terminal. The CMC caller
told him that he had no idea what he was talking about as he looked into
his history because there was NO RECORD OF HIS DEADHEAD! The conductor
asked him how he thought he got home from the hotel when he was not
called out for a train. He didn't walk. He didn't fly. He rode back
to the home terminal in a wagon after he had already been checked into
the hotel. A few words were exchanged and the call ended. I told him I
could not help but over hear what happened and offered advice. He was
happy to listen. I told him that if he had been in an accident in that
wagon you can bet your bottom dollar his form of transportation and the
time he started and ended it would be in his records. In fact it would
be there faster than the injury lawyer could show up at his hospital.
THIS IS NOT A UNION ISSUE! Many employees confuse what is a union
covered issue and what is an professional ethical issue as well as a
break down of communication within the departments. This is also a
Federal issue because the company is responsible for reporting all your
hours of service ACTIVITY whether it be working on a train or
deadheading in a wagon. ALL ACTIVITY! The notice that came out also
throws the responsibility into your lap as well. I suggested he cover
every avenue to protect his name and his job and start a paper trail. 
Call PTI or who ever was your transportation service and inform them
that the company has lost the information on your deadhead and
therefore who ever transported you may be hit with a red flag and
accused with reporting a false trip or even worse the transportation
company may be accused of charging CSX for a run that they did not do.
This is stealing. Plain and simple.  Let them handle what you have told
them on your end. Then call the FRA and report what has happened and
that your HOS and mode of transportation may be reported wrong and let
them tell you want they want you to do. PAYROLL CAN NOT FIX IT! They
can only pay you for what they have been instructed to pay you. They
can not fix it. This however is not a pay issue anymore. This is legal
information that has disappeared from the system. There is no excuse
for any type of information disappearing from the system. What he did
with my advice I do not know. 
Now to your issue. You are having a problem with your pay tickets and
your tour summary information being accurate. One is reported correctly
and one is not. Call Chessie when this happens. Tell them that there is
a computer program error occurring. Have them log into the computer
with you and take screen shots of what you are seeing. They can do this
and should. Create a case through the Chessie help desk and give them a
chance to take care of it. If you do not receive a response within one
week or do not see a change in your records in 30 days then report it
to the FRA hours of service desk. You have every right to be concerned
when your records do not show accurate reporting and there are
discrepancies within the departments reporting system. You don't need
your unions involved on this. Do not let anyone in management tell you
that you need to take this up with your unions. IT IS NOT TRUE! This in
a problem within the departments. You are not concerned with the pay
issue any more. You are concerned with your name being attached to
records that are not being reported properly or they are missing all
together.

You can find information on these kind of activities in your CSX code
of ethics handbook. It will be explained thoroughly under fraud and
theft and Financial reporting and ACCURATE RECORDKEEPING. It is your
responsibility to bring these issues as an employee to the companies
attention. You will find that stated very clearly numerous times within
the code of ethics handbook.

RRJIM.

deadhead by caboose.  You are older than dirt. This compnay has gotten
so bad no one gives a shit anymore. Mark off any way you can. These
bastards have kept boards so short and people on the street to the
point it's a damn nightmare. They reduced caps to a ridiculous level
for over a year now and the union's are just sitting on their
worthless asses doing nothing. Getting on the computer and fighting
for
a personal day before vacation time is a frickin joke. On the computer
at midnight fighting with everyone else for it. They violate the
agreement like it's no big deal. Always have. Supposed to keep enough
people hired and xbd full to cover agreed caps and days off. Just
another frickin stab in our backs.just like the availabity policy. So
Mark off sick at hotel, redblock or what ever you can do to take care
of yourself and your plans. Screw this company and their back stabbing
lying chiefs and their favortism to their pet crews. karma is a bitch.
Their trains can sit and rot!

First things first.  There's a lot of illiterate RR workers who post on
here and many who know very little about rr life or give 2 damns about
how much you sacrifice for your family and yourself for doing a
non-thankful job on a daily. We forgive you. To my fellow union
members, make this labor day a day that you send a message to the
people who think they own you.  Make this a turning point in history if
you have to.  Make it a day that unites the RR worker that tells these
companies you/we stand together as a whole.  Put your co-worker before
your selfish need and stand together and lay off.  Make them know you
truly stand as one.  I cannot stress enough that if you aren't with
your brothers union strong you will fall.  They cannot replace our
knowledge as hard as they might try.  Lets make this year and next year
as a time when we finally bind together.  There is no other message they
understand. Please lay off Monday September 3rd no matter what the
reason and stand in unity just one time.  Losing your stock award
shouldn't be an excuse.  Getting 3 or 4 points shouldn't be an
excuse.  If this company already has you that afraid then you no longer
have a right to complain.  If our union leadership had any backbone they
would have already sent you this message but they don't! I know you
don't know me.  But I know you.  I know many of you who read this
website.  I care about you.  Put it on a bathroom wall.  Put it on the
door you open up you hit your head on.  Put it on that label that tells
you not to undo the latches thats always scratched out.  Brothers you
know what I'm talking about.  Enough is enough.

As much as our unions might not do for us its a scary thought what
they'd do to us without them.  Today a supreme court decision made it
more difficult for unions to get membership and it was applauded by our
idiot in chief.  I'll be glad when union workers a-holes are so rimmed
out that they finally grow a pair and do something about all that
fucking they're getting!
