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 might not need a clerk. CSX might not need a yard master. CSX might
not need  a trainmasters. CSX might not need a RFE. CSX might not need
a terminal manager. CSX might not need a computer tech. CSX might not
need a benefits manager. CSX might not need utility man. CSX might not
need employee availability specialist.  CSX might not need a rules
department.  CSX might not need Fmla department. CSX might not need a
payroll department. CSX might not need customer service center.  

BUT UNTILL THERE IS NOT A RAILROAD or R2D2 IS AT THE CONTROLS.  THOSE
BITCHES IN FLORIDA NEED A LOCOMOTIVE OPERATOR.   

Mantle Ridge are legal criminals.

Union Brothers

Im new to this union business stuff and so far from what Im seeing it
isn't just a rip off but kind of being forced to pay for a service
that keeps us from getting our legs broke like in the mafia days. But
what I don't get is how is this all legal when they aren't really
protecting a damn thing for us and leaving us in the dark.

Can someone explain how they figure our dues. I was told the Unions get
a percentage of what our wage is. How do they figure what our wage is if
we get trip rates. I can understand how they figure yard guys because
they have set 8 hour rate.  If we go to hourly how are they going to
figure what they can take out of our pockets on that. I think they
would only be able to figure everyone at a 40 hour work week times the
hourly wage. But then we don't work 40. Most of us work close to 60. 
I got a feeling we are being ripped off!

Inside info: you may have heard of more cuts to come, that’s an
understatement. You are also going to be forced to hourly. Sadly, your
“votes” are as irrelevant as the unions you pay for representation. As
for the sale of some CSX properties and trackage: a few short lines
have bids that are already known about, however, there is a class 1
with a recent bid that apparently, by the amount of the bids, will
clearly win those. I can’t say at this point who and which lines due to
only a few people are aware of this. It will be out soon enough. I can
tell you a decent size short line (who’s salary is subpar) has a bid in
for the L&N and W&A. Good luck.

Crews!!
Have a friend who has a brother who is an LC on another division. He
said that his brother told him the company and the union is talking
behind closed doors and not letting anyone else get involved. Said they
cant get the real details and are keeping them in the dark too. Can you
imagine that!! A union that keeps its own LC reps in the dark so they
can come in and blind side the members with agreements that they don't
involve the money paying members who are really their bosses. They are
supposedly talking about the work rule changes and how the super pools
are going to work.  The post from labor law was spot on. They are
afraid to let us know whats going on because they are afraid of the
uproar it might cause.

UTU-BLET 
Question....why would an LC who spent years making a name for himself
as one hell of a rep and be known as a major thorn in the companies
side walk into the superintendants office and an hour later come out
and resign as LC and put in his application for a manager's poition.
I'll tell you why....BECAUSE HE WAS TOLD SOMETHING THAT HE KNOWS WILL
MAKE HIS LIFE MISERABLE. He knows what ever is going down will be so
detrimental to all of us that even he won't be able to handle the
backlash. The flood of phone calls. The flood of complaints. The rage
of the members. No peace of mind at work. 
So you tell us. What the hell are you hiding. We pay you good money to
represent us. Your are working for us. We don't work for . You think
for one moment we can't sue your asses if you blind side us with out
discussions with the members?  You throw us under the bus and you can
kiss your dues goodbye. Don't think we can't do it while we file
charges and demand a federal investigation in violation of federal
rights UNDER THE LMRDA!  Your up to something and leaving us in the
dark. We have a right to know! We know you read this site. It's a
fact. If your shit stinks right now you better consider cleaning it up!

Some of you people need to get a life.  This is my first post and
probably my last for a while.  CSX is a business.  The intent is to
make money for the owners (shareholders).  Not to provide employment. 
The union does not run the show.  When many of you realize these
concepts, maybe you would understand your role in all of this.  I have
worked hard for this company for many, many years.  Had many good days
and some bad.  Overall this has been a good job (not career).  If I
stay the course, I will probably retire a millionaire with no regrets
knowing I did the best I could, and a college education was not
required.  Yet, I earned one of these as well that the company paid for
(reimbursement).  If you feel you worked hard on the railroad (T & E)
then try having a real job for a while.  Tired of hearing people
complain about how hard they have it as a professional train rider who
mostly can't do anything else but ride trains.  I hope the hourly rate
is presented for a review and vote to see if an agreeement can be
reached.  The reason that unions get a bad rap is due to the inaction
of the leaders and members.  Many representatives take management
positions, and many others take the job just for marking off
privileges.  As for those that abused FMLA, you should be fired.  We
are our own worst enemy as well thinking you gain something by killing
trains and turning 4 hour jobs into 12 because you cannot survive
financially without it.  Try taking pride in what you do, and remember
we are paid very well for what we do.  Find a hobby instead of watching
the board constantly to see what everyone else is doing.  Enjoy life and
don't worry about things you can't control.  Thanks.

If the company wants to pay us an hourly rate.   It's not out of the
goodness of their hearts.   Just more Job cuts.  Why would we willingly
help CSX cut jobs.  Fuck mantle ridge and their puppets.    
Those who were wrongfully pulled OOS sue the hell out of them.

Let me say this. WHEN? WHEN? Feel free to explain.  When did the company
every want something (hourly rate) that benefited the employee? All
everyone sees is $$$$ signs. You sign up for this and be ready. It WILL
get worse under hourly. I always hear this job sucks. I can't get time
off. Signed up for hourly and it will get worse. So many with blinders
on and can't see past the $$ signs.

Don't know where in the hell this figure of 50 bucks an hour came up.
Not one time did that amount every come into discussion. This is just
an attempt to persuade people to go for the hourly rate.  38.50 was the
only dollar amount that was thrown out there. The unions laughed at it
and asked for 50.00. Got news for all of you. IT AINT GOING TO HAPPEN! 
Your getting brainwashed on this site by the followers of the dead HH
and Foote. CSX is the lowest paying class 1 railroad in the entire
system of railroads. Always has been and always will be. The reason
they are is because they know they will always find someone to hire for
their low rate. No different than all the employers who hire illegals
and pay cut rate to the Mexican workers they hire by the dozens. THEY
DONT HAVE TO PAY YOU A DIME MORE THAN THEY DO NOW. They could put
everyone of you on the street and replace you at a drop of a hat. Their
filing cabinets are full of applications! CSX T&E employees are now paid
and average of 25.00 hour. With the extra working perks it makes you
about 38.00. That is exactly what their original offer was. Now if they
take some of the perks away which they have every intention of doing
then you will be right back where you where. Road crews count on
overtime and held away at the hotels. Then there are the ridiculously
low meals they pay. Did you know with the new trump law changes that
your meal claims on your taxes will most likely be thrown out the door?
Ask your tax accountant. If the company goes with the super pools and
the relay trains the hotel stays will diminish. If you agree to the
cheap raise they really want to offer and all work rules are removed
you wont be making shit.  I just spent 12 hours being a dog catcher,
yard hostler, local switcher. It was a bitch! Re crewed 3 dead trains,
did the local work for one on the way buy to the terminal, tagged
motors on out bounds, drug bad power to the house and when we had 20
minutes left to work they actually wanted us to get the power off a
road train that rolled in late and try and rush it to the pad. Sorry
Charlie it aint going to happen. NO MORE OUTLAWING ON ANY JOB JUST TO
GET THAT LAST PHOTO FINISH MOVE IN FOR THE BOSS MAN! This is what you
will be looking forward too. They will get every minute out of you and
everyone one of you know it. Combining yard and road together will be
your worst nightmare. This will include covering all the local jobs as
well. Wont you just love coming in on 10 hour trip and then they want
you to go drag in a dead local. How many of you have been sent out to
get an outlawed train just to move it up and sit outside the yard and
outlaw. Sit there for 2 hours waiting for a ride or someone to relieve
you. Yeah you might be on overtime but its just blood money after you
have been on the road all day and you just want to get home. No more
second tickets. No more perks. No more seniority. No more jobs to
select from. No more...no more....no more...   And get that 50.00 hour
out of your heads.  ITS NOT HAPPENING!

Do not take the bait hourly rate will kill jobs and help the company,
they r not going to give you more money out of the kindness of there
heart, stand together. Please call your GC I know it takes time but we
have to make our voice heard, if you do anything at all this yr. In
2018, make that one thing a phone call to your GC, just one and say no
to hourly rate. If everyone made one phone call it adds up, we need to
fight and get involved in our locals, and you can do so by makeing just
one call.

The carrier is pushing the hourly rate.  When HH broke negotiations off
the carrier was offering around 40 the union wanted more.  The carrier
is back at the table with it.   Ask some CP men this is exactly how it
went down there.    This is not made up.  This is going on. Carrier is
also trying to change home terminals  Carrier wants to slash manpower.
CP went from 19000 to 11500.  There are huge changes coming by summer.

These clowns talk about how easy railroading is and much money we make,
how good we have it. They don't have a clue how stressful it can be,
not only all the rules and regulations, but mainly the fact of having
to watch your back at all times, with suck-ass managers trying to shiv
you everyday. The only industry I know of where you need to carry
run-off insurance.
