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.

attendance points!

Just got off the phone with my Lc and he said that they have been
discussing amongst themselves on what to do if we are not given credit
for good attendance during the month of may if we earned it. The old
policy is still in effect and we are all entitled to the 3 points back
on June 1st even though the new policy takes effect on the same date.
He seems to think it will cause a problem and they should have made it
effective no sooner than the 5th. If we don't get the credits due us
on June 1st we will all need to submit written complaints to our reps
to take to the General chairman and demand the terms of the existing
agreement we had in effect be honored.

Smh, Iím with you brother. 
First things first: 
The beauty of the railroad is the mentally retarded folks that run it.
Computers run everything these days-job titles are only for the
narcissist egomaniacs that believe they are gonna climb a never ending
ladder. The mainframe will work regardless of who the ceo or assistant
superintendent is.  They will answer for our actions before we do-if we
are to do this.

Second: WE DO NOT NEED TO STRIKE! All we have to do is follow their
rules to  the best of our abilities and that will have a profound
effect.(see my previous posts)

Third: If we are to do this, everyone needs fire insurance. The asshat
mgrís will get angry and some will pay-at least they will get paid
though. If the cost of insurance is too high we tell the UTU or BRCF
Ďhey we want full benefits at $xx.xx a monthí if they donít like it
well there is 3,000 members that will go elsewhere. Strength in
numbers. We are in control.

Fourth: I donít pay these fuckin dues for nothing. The union better get
its act together instead of putting out letters that express how
dissatisfied they are with company policies. For too long the unions
have sat back and let it happen. They throw their hands in the air-
like they are at a Ricky Martin concert or some shit. Organize the
organized or be replaced with ACRE, BLET, or whoever the hell else
there is. 

We get caught up in the mundane process of work and life sometimes.
Answer the phone, go to work, go to sleep... that we donít realize we
are getting in the butt until you wake up one day and you are so tired
you can barely move. I havenít been working on the railroad these years
to get taken out by a drone or some dickhead attendance policy.

I should write a book...

The company with these policies is telling you that they absolutely
need and depend on you. They need the workforce to be lean to produce
good numbers. PSR donít work, and if it does-it doesnít work for us.

Give then what they ask for and these policies will disappear. Give
them their bad orders, give them their bad switches, give them their

If they thought losing a favorable award from an arbitrator was bad,
wait until they see a unified group following their rules to a ĎTí. 

Unions must pressure local management to create a list of required
items to be on the employees person when working. That way when a
ďbook-checkĒ occurs you have everything that is listed.

Unions must pressure local management to create a work flow of all
tasks to be completed during shifts. That way when they see how thin
they are spread and all the work they need only gets finished half-way
you are protected from any backlash.

Their railroad, their rules- show emí why they are retards.

Strikes are illegal on the railroad-we all know. 

There will be no strike and there will be no slow down.

There will come a point though when ALL will realize in unison that in
order to work safely we must take the time to review our tasks before,
during, and after making any kind of move. If this slows down the work
then it slows down the work. 

Nothing illegal.

It is up to the union to organize this safety effort to ensure all are
on the same page.

The General Chair will have to advise the locals, and the locals will
have to advise the membership.

The company says we are unsafe. Well then itís time to get safe at the
same time, system wide. No favors, no shortcuts, just compliance.

Items to include (but limited to):
Shopping bad order cars on the hump,
Shopping engines that arenít 100% in compliance,
Stopping movements during shoves when radio transmission becomes
Pulling Auto racks in yard cuts at 4 Mph to reduce sway,
Watching all bowl pull cuts at 4mph to inspect cars for bad orders,
Tagging all switches that require an unreasonable amount of force,

The company issues managers compliance testing protocol every month or
so. The union will do the same!

Two can play this game.

To clear your record you would have to go a full year without taking a
sick day without a dr. Slip???  Think what you just said. What if you
take a sick day during that year and have a valid slip. It's going to
cost you 2 points! So you can't do it in a year unless you take NO
sick days at all or you are admitted to the hospital or go to emergency
room.  Don't forget the biggest factor of all....NO POINTS ASSESSED IF
THEY WARRANT YOUR SUBMITTED INFO VALID.  thats the damn problem. You
got 3 days to get this info to them in order to see if they pardon you
and give you 2 points or none. You take off to the doctor and the next
day as soon as your marked up they call you out. Your on the damb road.
You end up in the hotel for 30 hours like we were last time, then you
get a 12 hr. Trip home. You going to mail this as soon as you walk in
the door after seeing the doctor or find a ride to take you to a post
office at your AFHT! A postmark within 3 days from the visit should be
acceptable if you don't have or can't get to a fax machine.
This crap starts June 1st.  What about the points that are supposed to
be removed on June first if you go all of May without a mark off. Are
we getting credit for this GOOD LITTLE BOY BEHAVIOR?? Let's see on the
first if we get our earned credit.

SO TO RECAP....with the old policy if you had 16 points it only took 6
months to clear your record. Remember you got 3 points back for each
month you stayed marked up. With this new policy you only get 10 points
for each 6 months so it will take a year now to clear all 16.  Who the
hell never gets sick all year!  So come into work sick as shit. Every
single time you mark off unless it is an emergency or hospital visit
they pardon, you will be starting your 6 months all over again. Welcome
to HELL!

I come to work and do my job.   I don't care if a TM is following me on
foot or by drone.  What can a TM do to me?  Nothing! That's what. 
I've been out here 26 years.   I've seen managers come and go.. Most
quit some are let go but I'm still here.   They can't take your
birthday away.  The intimidated employee is the one who gives these
managers power.    26 years I've come to the conclusion. That most
contract employees are veterans, tradesman and college grads. The
contract employees skills and education are greater than the lower
level managers who try To baby sit us.  Most lower level managers are
someone who wants to be in the middle of all the BS. Has no friends and
on their third marriage.  I don't even bother to ask their name and
never keep their phone number.  The new TM will be gone before we bid
on vacations.

Everyone marking off sick Is long over due. Unfortunately we dont stick

From the beginning of their  caps policy.  The union said that Step1 and
step 2 were absolutely discipline.  The carrier of course stated it was
not. So they could hold Step 1 and Step 2 over an employee's head till
they were fired or quit. 

The ble Csx agreement states ever rolling 6 months that an engineer
with 5 years seniority  1 discipline would fall off an engineers record
with no other infractions.  It was the carrier's sad attempt to breach

The arbitrator stated it was most certainly discipline. It has always
been discipline.  Anyone who is in step 1 or step 2.  Their record must
be reviewed and steps removed if a rolling 6 months was covered.
 CSX will manipulate and twist our agreements for their benefit. They
knew this was a breach of contract.  They do not care!!! CSX and it's
high brass are criminals.

Don't forget about our union agreements.  We have an early lay off
rule along with a noon mark off along with several other agreement term
that will cause ticket and pay problems. You can come back in 4 but you
are entitled to another ticket. It doesn't matter if your supposidly
finishing an ordered 12 hr. Shift.  No where in our agreement is it
stated that every single job will be considered 12 hours. Yard jobs
advertised for 8 hrs with relief by another shift still have
contractual agreements. All avenues of filing vacancies per the
agreements must be honored.  Yeah...yeah...they don't give a crap
about the agreements. Put in your claims and make a stand or cry your
diapers wet.  It's your choice.

When ever you kids get tired of how they are treating us, pick a date
for everyone to go to the doctor to get checked out.

Sick of being harrassed?
Sick of being bullied?
Sick of being ordered to do unsafe things?
Sick of having claims denied?
Sick of pay being messed up?
SIck of being denied contractual time off?
Sick of being rushed out of the crew room?
Sick of not being able to do a proper job briefing?

If we are sick of how CSX is treating us, maybe we all need to mark of
sick at the same time and go get checked out by a doctor? Can't fire
you if you go get a doctor note for being SICK OF HOW THEY TREAT US!
