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.

CSX is down 10% today due to a disappointment in earnings. UP will
report next week, and is down 6% today. UP will drop even more tomorrow
after its earnings report due in part to the local managers and 
senior managers still cannot comprehend basic train operations.

UP Railroading 101:

When calling crews, transportation is required in order for the crews
too board and de-board their trains. This will essentially eliminate 
unnecessary delays, and make you look like geniuses. 
Until then, you all will remain stUPid and incompetent!

This is not a surprise.  The culture with this company is ridiculous. 
Half the managers and employees should be bagging groceries at the
local supermarket.  The company does not hired based upon skills and
talent, but the buddy, buddy, system and those that canít ďcut the
mustardĒ (only literally) in the craft they came from.  The good ones
leave the company or go back to the craft.  We deserve better than
this.  I am only around until I feel the time is right to make the
switch as I have kids and waiting until I have enough money to start a
business without all the risk.  The union is a joke too.  In T & E on
the road, many of us donít know when we will work, or what our days off
will be as they keep adding variables. The average person has know idea
of this concept trying to sleep at a hotel during the day with doors
banging, vacuum cleaners running, or at home when work calls at 8 pm,
10 pm, and 12 am and then finally a job you have to take at 5 am.   I
know I have developed health problems such as depression, high blood
pressure, high cholesterol, circadian rhythm disorder and now diabetes,
and I live a pretty active lifestyle and not overweight by much.  The
company rewards laziness by extra money and deadheads.  Those of us
that can get trains over the road are rewarded with longer days and
more hotel time.  I guess I should become subpar.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGF4wgQolJ4&feature=share. Great video
and worth watching how members of congress do there job. Please do
your
part to protect the jobs keep the great American railroad going
strong.
  Its common sense
thousands of railroad workers will lose their jobs if all the
railroads
are allowed to go to 1 man crews. That's an issue you need to take up
with TRUMP!  He claims he is creating jobs then let him do something
about people keeping the ones they have!
This is about safety. This is about saving lives. Not just crew lives
but the American people as well. CSX preaches safety every single day.
Its in their rule books and in their advertising. Its 24 hour a day
safety...safety....safety. Well let them put their money where their
mouths are. Pay for safety. Keep 2 men in the cab.
The public has no idea what we deal with. Tell your neighbors about
how
many cars we hit and people are killed every year when they are hit by
trains. Explain to them how the engineer is in the cab calling the
dispatcher and getting 911 called. He is taking care of anything that
may be wrong with the locomotive. He stays with the train. Tell them
how the conductor gets down and rushes to the vehicle to see if he can
possibly save a life. Maybe a baby is in the car and needs to be
helped
or maybe the parents can be removed and need CPR. Maybe he can comfort
someone who is dying or in shock or screaming because they are
severely
injured . Tell them about how we hit live stock and large deer. Tell
them how people love to put junk on the tracks. Shopping carts,
bicycles, steel barrows, wheelchairs and even abandoned cars. Tell
them
about how many trees we hit a year and do extensive damage to the
locomotive. The engineer stays with the locomotives and assess the
damage and does what is necessary to radio dispatchers for help while
the conductors gets down and removes debris and check the rest of the
train for any damage or signs of derailment. Tell them about the
territory that is in the middle of TIM BUCK TWO!  The places where no
one can get to you fast unless you have a helicopter. Tell them how
radios don't always work in remote locations. Telemetry drops out and
communication is lost. How many times does a conductor have to go back
and trouble shoot another unit after alarms are going off. The
engineer
keeps the train rolling the best he can while the conductor checks the
computers and checks to see if it is loading. Tell them about the
blind
curves that only one crew member can see around when your approaching
public crossings or trees that block signals so that only one crew
member can see them until you get the train right on top of them. Tell
them about wash outs from floods, and heat warped rail and fog so
thick
you cant see a foot in front of you. SO WHAT IF YOU GOT PTC!!  PTC
does
not tell you if a car in stopped on the tracks or a tree is across it
or a person is walking in the tracks or there is 5 inches of water
over
the rail! Tell them how crew members have been attacked and some have
even been killed by gang thugs and trespassers. A single man has no
chance in hell in  these situations. It is better to have someone else
with you to keep watch when working in bad areas and ghetto rail
yards.
The list goes on and on. Tell them how the company took away the right
of the crew members to take a power nap. One crew member is supposed
to
call stopped every 15 minutes while they are waiting on line of road.
As
long as someone is awake and doing this and paying attention there is
no
reason on god green earth while a tired crew member cant take a 20
minute power nap. Tell them how crews are run into the ground and some
are called out every 10 hours around the clock. They work all hours of
the day and night and most have no weekends off. The company wont even
let them have a power nap. What is going to happen when there is only
1
man on the train by himself and he is just plain worn out or is sick
and
afraid to take a day off because of the companies new attendance
policy
which is just absolutely insane. People come to work sick all the
time.
Vomiting, diarrhea, fevers and the flu doesn't stop them because they
are in fear of losing their jobs. How is a sick man who is all by
himself going to be able to make a full run safely and without risking
his life or the publics when he doesn't have his other crew member to
help keep him alert. The engineer has many roles and duties as well as
the conductor. There are times when something happens that it is a
must
for an engineer to be on board and ready to take instructions while
the
conductor handles the rest of the responsibilities.  There are so many
things that go into railroading and running trains that the public
doesn't know a thing about. 
THIS ONE MAN CREW IDEA IS THE MOST UNSAFE AND IRRESPONSIBLE IDEA that
has ever been brought forward in the history of the railroad industry.

And for what? To save a damn dollar. To line someone's pockets. To
make
someone rich. Who care who gets killed. Who care about the destruction
to family lives. I don't know about you but I sure the hell do and so
should every person in America!

Trainmaster/yardmaster


Let me explain something to both of you. Wait...just the poser
trainmaster since the yardmaster is nothing more than a secretary for
the trainmaster and is a UNION CONTRACT EMPLOYEE!

You are obviously not very smart. Do you understand what an
agreement/contract is. To explain it so your little brain can
understand, it is just like your cell phone or cable agreement. Some of
them have terms that state if you end your contract early you will pay
fees. If you hire a contractor to work on your home and you sign a
contract with them you expect them to do the work they agreed upon and
they expect to be paid what you agreed upon.
So do you understand the concept of a contract or an agreement?

Now lets get back to CSX. For some particular reason they have this
idea that it is perfectly okay to breach these agreements. They think
it is okay to manipulate the hell out of agreements that they signed
and sealed with their John Henry at a bargaining table. They have done
nothing but spit on the agreements and shown that they did not nor did
they ever intend to negotiate in good faith. I cant understand for the
life of me how the unions have not been able to take CSX to federal
court and sue the living shit out of them. The railway labor act should
have nothing to do with going after a company for deliberately going
back on any agreement that they signed and sealed.  The employees have
every right to be made at CSX for doing this and they have every right
to be mad at the unions who take their money every month and sit back
and let CSX rape the hell out of their agreements.  Its not being lazy.
If a crew is told to go out and do something that they should be
compensated for because it is not part of the agreed working conditions
for their particular job they shouldn't have to put in damn claims and
demand they be paid for it. The company should just do what they hell
they agreed to do and quit this horseshit of violating terms they
agreed upon. Its all just childish, greedy, unprofessional and
unethical behavior. It has created an atmosphere of hate and disgust in
the work place by all the employees. No one should ever HATE THE COMPANY
THEY WORK FOR! How in the hell can this be productive. Working in a
hostile environment is no good for anyone. The TM and other terminal
supervisors have to deal with crews that are pissed and disgruntled
every single day. The supervisors have to try and run a terminal with
limited manpower because CSX's top rank and file have decided that it
is more important to slash and cut as many people from the workforce as
possible thus creating shortages on every single job out there.
Supervisors have to order people to go out and do the work of two men
in order to get things done. People cant get reasonable days off.
Personal days are being removed and denied. Freight is delayed. How the
hell is any of this being productive. If CSX would honor the union
agreements which clearly state that they will keep enough employees
hired to cover all anticipated shortages none of this would be
happening. But they are not. THEY ARE ONCE AGAIN VIOLATING WHAT THEY
AGREED UPON AT THE BARGAINING TABLES!  So what is happening because
they have no respect for the agreements and holding up their end of the
bargain? They have supervisors abusing working conditions and doing what
every they can do to keep Jacksonville off their arsses and alienating
the employees who in turn hate their company and toss EOTS in the
nearest dumpster or in the rivers. They have employees who do not give
100% to their jobs and people who post on websites how much they hate
them. Then their are idiots like you who post ignorant crap because
your either sick in the head and love being bent over and abused or
your just a horses ass who has nothing better to do. Either way this is
why you have a website that is called....CSX SUCKS!

So I was working a yard assignment the other day pondering how shitty
CSX treats it's employees.  Just so happens, I happened to be about
100 feet away from a EOT rack and what do you know there was 4 EOT's
on that bastard.  The EOT rack is between 2 yard leads and there isn't
any cameras in sight. Just so happens, there was about 6-7 loaded scrap
cars adjacent to the soon to be departing train.  Well, let's just say
there wasn't 4 EOT's on the rack when the train departed.

Brothers

Just retired is right!  I sat down with the railroad retirement officer
and crunched the numbers to see what I would get if you walked out the
door today. You do get your pension once you are vested. You take a cut
if you leave early but it may be well worth it. Go find out what you
will make. After they give you the numbers you can add another 100
bucks to it for every year you work after you walk out the door. Im
doing 23 and getting the hell out. My wife works and the total he gave
me is good enough. Not putting up with this unethical corrupt crap
anymore than I have too. So sick of paying my hard earned money to a
mofia run union that wont do a thing about this constant everyday abuse
of our agreements. It is every single day now. It has been going on for
months, The supervisors will stand right there and tell you too your
face to go take it up with your union rep. Put in a claim! Then stand
there and threaten you with insubordination. they use this bull crap
line every single time. Guys are laying down and to puss... whipped to
take a stand. No one puts in claims or files ethics charges. Im sick of
putting my claims in and not hearing a thing for months on end. SO WHAT
IF I GET A CALIM PAID!   I don't care about the money. I know the
agreements are  not there to supplement any ones income. That's not
what union agreements are for. The agreements are conditions of work,
CSX signed them and agreed to follow them. They are abusing them every
single day and don't care the least bit that they are just out right
liars and deliberately ignore them. The fines are nothing more than
pocket change to them. Until the unions start sending the bills at 100%
and go after them in court for not paying them we are nothing more than
a bunch of closed shopped puppets who are going to be bent over and
abused and laughed at.  Im tired of being treated like trash! So Im
getting the hell out as fast as I can.  That's going to be 2400
dollars a year in union dues that I will be putting in my pocket.

Pension...? Who said i wasn't going to get my Railroad Retirement.
Once you're vested you're vested you're going to get it it's all
based on your years of service in the amount you're going to get
before I quit I called railroad retirement and they sent me an atom
ization of what my retirement would get if I quit I decided that was
more than enough and that a couple hundred dollars more a month for
another 12 years of Agony at that s*** hole wasn't worth it.
So people don't be fooled into thinking if you quit you're going to
lose your Railroad Retirement call Railroad Retirement they'll send
you an  atomization of your retirement with your years of service.
